Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). With a non-stick cooking spray, coat a 13X9X2 inch baking pan. Dust with flour and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the cocoa, confectioners' sugar, butter and 2 tablespoons hot water until smooth and set aside.
  3. In microwavable bowl, place peanut butter chips and shortening. Microwave on high for 1 minute, or until chips are melted and smooth when stirred.
  4. In large bowl, combine cake mix, brown sugar, 1-1/4 cups water, eggs and reserved melted peanut butter mixture; beat on low speed of electric mixer until moistened. Increase speed to medium, beat 2 minutes until smooth. Remove 1-1/2 cups of the batter and add it to the reserved cocoa mixture; blend well.
  5. Pour the peanut butter flavored batter into the prepared pan. Drop spoonfuls of the chocolate batter on top. Swirl with a knife or spatula for a marbled effect.
  6. Bake at 350 degree F (175 degrees C) for 40 to 45 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and frost as desired.

This is a great recipe. I substituted creamy peanut butter for the peanut butter chips and it still came out fantastic. Thanks for the recipe!

This cake is SO GOOD! I made 2 round layers with peanut butter frosting and mini chocolate chips on top and in between the layers. For the frosting I used pre-made cream cheese frosting mixed with natural peanut butter. I also used natural peanut butter in the recipe instead of peanut butter chips. Everyone at my husbands birthday party said it tasted just like a Reeses peanut butter cup - yum!

I made this for my Dad's birthday, and it was a hit! He requested a peanut butter chocolate cake...and this is what I thought would work. It's definitly peanut butter chocolatey..and VERY MOIST! One suggestion...since it doesn't call for a certain frosting...I would recommend adding butter cream frosting to another peanutbutter-chip-and-shortning-mixture. Then, after you frost it..sprinkle chocolate chips and your leftover peanut butter chips on top. That's what I did. Enjoy!
