Sharing this Peanut Butter Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake recipe today.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Texas Sheetcake is an awesome dessert. The 2 kinds of sheet cakes are combined and topped with 2 kinds of frosting.

My favorite cake is Texas sheet cake and I make it every time that I need a dessert to serve a lot of people. A few days ago, I was in the mood to make one, but I was also in the mood to make a peanut butter sheet cake.  This crazy thought popped into my head that maybe I could make them both in one cake! That is how Peanut Butter Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake was created. It is so good!

I made a half recipe for each of the cakes. Then, I made a full recipe of the chocolate icing and a half recipe of the peanut butter icing.

After the advice of my neighborhood taste testers, it was decided you have to make the full peanut butter icing recipe also.  I totally agree.

Anyone that loves peanut butter and chocolate together
will beg you to make this again.

Start by making a half recipe of the Texas sheet cake. Spread in the bottom of a baking pan. 

I used my  11×17 inch stoneware pan from Pampered Chef. It looks very used because it has been, for many years.

Prepare a half recipe of the peanut butter sheet cake.
I just poured it over the chocolate layer.  I was going to 
swirl it through with a knife, but worried that it would all turn to chocolate.

Prepare the peanut butter icing after the chocolate icing
has started to cool and become hardened. Pour or spread
over the chocolate icing.

Allow cake to cool completely and cut into desired size squares.

Don’t be intimidated by the ingredient list.
Except for the peanut butter, it is the same ingredients
for both cakes and frostings.
