Peanut Butter Cup Dump Cake – Just 4 ingredients come together to make a rich, fudgy, chocolate-y cake studded with lots of peanut butter cups!
I like baking and coming up with new desserts. I know not everyone is like that, but it is something I definitely enjoy! Something like Mint Chocolate Chip Pie is easy to make, but always impresses everyone.
But sometimes you want to fall back on a classic, and maybe update it a little bit. A dump cake is a classic dessert that is so easy to make. Everyone loves them! This chocolate dump cake gets a little fun with the add in of peanut butter cups. But the same classic 3 ingredients, and the same super easy recipe.
What is a Dump Cake
It is a super simple dessert where you just mix the ingredients together and bake. It starts with a cake mix and then often times some kind of fruit filling and butter. Here we used a chocolate cake mix and a box of chocolate pudding with milk to bring it all together.
How to Make a Dump Cake
It is exactly what it sounds like, just dump the ingredients and bake. Lots of times you layer the ingredients in the baking dish and don’t even mix it. This one is a little different because I use milk to bring it all together. But you can dump everything in the baking dish and mix in there if you want.
Have you ever tried a dump cake? The concept is super easy. Just dump cake mix, pudding mix, and milk together. Then you bake. No mixer required. Super easy when you have no time to bake something. You can use any flavor cake you want! Different than a chocolate sheet cake, but so good and you will love it!
This chocolate dump cake is perfect to then dress up how ever you want. Add in chocolate chips, cherry pie filling, candy of your choice. Top with whipped cream, ice cream, or even hot fudge sauce. So easy to customize to whatever your family likes. Pumpkin Dump Cake is a great one to make in the fall.
Here are some of my favorite Kitchen Items I used to make this recipe:
Pyrex Pan – A good 13×9 inch pan is essential when making dinners and desserts. This one holds up to the high temperature of the oven, and works great for no bake desserts that go in and out of the fridge often!
Mixing Bowls: I love having a variety of sizes of mixing bowls. From small to large, I find that having at least 3 bowls of different sizes has been an essential in my kitchen. I prefer Pyrex because of the durability.
Whisk – I love a heavy duty metal whisk for a lot of different uses. I want it to be able to hold up to a thick batter. And this one has lasted for years.
