Easter Dessert: Homemade Kandy Kake (No candy is involved I promise)

You may not be familiar with Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes by TastyKake if you are not from PA or on the East Coast.  They were originally known as Tandy Kakes.  They have been my favorite dessert since I was a child. 

A little vanilla cake (spongy in texture) covered by a layer of peanut butter enrobed in chocolate.  I have one word for you: Yummy.  I am thinking about making this for Easter dinner along with a cheesecake.

You can have a Kandy Kake tower cake (similar to the towers of Krispy Creme donuts I have seen) or you can even attempt to make your own Kandy Kake, like me. 

They are super easy to make on your own if you can't find them at a local convenience store or supermarket or if you want to make this treat a little healthier (without all of the preservatives).

Steps to make your own Kandy Kake:
1. All you need to do is bake a yellow cake (you can also buy a box mix).
2. While it is still hot/warm, spread a layer of peanut butter over it.
3. Refrigerate the cake until it cools (at least a 1/2 hour).
4. Melt 16 oz. of milk chocolate bars or chocolate chips and spread onto the cooled cake.*


*I put the cake in the fridge again to harden the chocolate.  I like when the chocolate is hard.  If you like it when the chocolate has more of an icing consistency then you can leave it out.

I made one today and I should have mentioned that you should chill the cake after spreading on the chocolate to help the chocolate harden.
