What is a dump cake?
Have you ever made a dump cake? They're so easy. Usually they are fruit based. Dump in a can of pineapples, dump in the dry cake mix and melted butter on top. This one's a bit more kid friendly with the chocolate peanut butter combo. It was my turn to bake for my daughter's youth group last Sunday at church, so I wanted to make something the "tweens" would like. They definitely loved this. We offered cupcakes and brownies as well, but all the kids wanted this! Ooey, gooey, chocolate peanut buttery goodness with Reese's peanut cups baked right in and also sprinkled on top a pillow of creamy, dreamy Cool Whip. And don't forget the chocolate syrup drizzled on top.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Dump cake is a combination of chocolate pudding, cake mix, peanut butter cheesecake and peanut butter cups. It's moist and delicious, topped with whipped topping, more peanut butter cups and drizzled with chocolate syrup. Yum!
