I know you're thinking, "ummm Reese's + Nutella? isn't that a little over-indulgent?"
Well your answer is yes, it is. But don't deny it- you're intrigued!
I made this cake for our friend Josh's birthday last month, and it was a hit! Truthfully, I wasn't quite sure what to make him for dessert, until his wife Dani said "well, he likes Reese's and Nutella." I figured, why not combine the two??
What you'll need to make it happen:
-Either Devil's Food Cake Mix or this recipe (yes, i cheated and used a mix. oops)
- 14 Reese's peanut butter cups (10 cut in half, the rest chopped up)
- 1/2 cup Nutella
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 4 ounces sugar
(or, Nutella + tub of cream cheese frosting!)
How to make it happen:
Step 1: Bake yo' cake in two 8 inch round cake pans.
Step 2: Let cool FULLY. No for real. Keep your hands off!
Step 3: Beat your cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir in Nutella.
Step 4: Set your first round down and put a layer of frosting down, and sprinkle chopped Reese's over it.
Step 5: Add your next layer of cake, and frost cake completely.
Step 6: Use your Reese's halves to place around the top and sides of the cake, covering the rest of the top of the cake with the crumbled pieces!
Step 7: Keep in fridge until ready to serve, and enjoy with a big glass of milk :)
There you have it. Nutella + Reese's Cake. It's as good as it looks, I promise.
