TANDY CAKES! Just like Tastykakes!

Tandy Cakes

This is VERY easy and uses a box yellow cake mix.


1 box of yellow cake mix
(plus the ingredients the cake mix calls for)
1 (12 oz.) jar of smooth peanut butter
1 (12 oz.) bag of semisweet chocolate chips
(I think milk chocolate might be more appropriate.)

Spray a jelly roll pan with non-stick spray.
Prepare the cake mix according to package directions.
Pour the batter into a jelly roll pan and bake.
(Tricky, depending on which cake mix you use. I baked mine at 350 degrees for 16 minutes.)

As soon as the cake is done use a spoon to gently drop peanut butter on to the top of the cake.
DO NOT SPREAD the peanut butter yet as it will tear the cake.
Instead, put the pan back into the oven and let the residual heat melt the peanut butter.

When the peanut butter has melted enough to spread easily, distribute it evenly over the cake.
Allow to cool completely.
(I usually wait about 15 minutes and then pop it in the fridge for a bit.)

When the peanut butter has set and the cake has completely cooled…
Melt the chocolate chips and stir until smooth.
Spread the melted chocolate over the peanut butter.
Place the pan back into the fridge to let the chocolate harden.

Cut into squares and serve chilled or at room temperature.
