    Servings: 9

    ½ box chocolate cake mix, prepared according to package

    8 ounces cream cheese, softened

    1 cup peanut butter

    1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

    1 cup milk

    8 ounces whipped topping


    # Preheat oven to 350°F/175C.

    # Spray a 9x9 baking pan with cooking spray.

    # Prepare and pour the chocolate cake batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

    # Using the back of a wooden spoon, poke 4 rows of 4 holes in the cake, making 16 holes total.

    # In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth.

    # Add condensed milk, whisking until there are no large lumps.

    # Gradually whisk in the milk, until smooth.

    # Pour the peanut butter mixture over the cake and set until the cake has absorbed as much of the mixture as it can. Some of the mixture will still stay on top, which is okay.

    # Freeze cake for 30 minutes, to slightly solidify the topping.

    # Spread the whipped topping evenly over the chilled cake.

    # Chill the cake anywhere from 3 hours to overnight.

    # Slice, and garnish with peanut butter cups.

    # Enjoy!
