Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
cup creamy peanut butter
cup Reese’s™ minis unwrapped Peanut Butter Cups™, halved (from 8-oz bag)
cup Reese’s Pieces™ candy
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom of 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray.
In large bowl, make cake batter as directed on box. Pour into pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
In medium bowl, mix vanilla frosting and peanut butter until mixed well. Drop frosting by spoonfuls evenly over cooled cake; carefully spread, and top with Toppings. To serve, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.
- For best success with this recipe, be sure to use a 15x10-inch pan with at least a 1-inch rim so there is less risk of cake batter spilling over while baking.
- The unwrapped minis are perfect for topping the cake, but if you can’t find them, the wrapped miniature peanut butter cups will also work. Just be sure to cut them in half before topping.
