Lately, I’ve been on a bit of a cookie kick. We’ve been making my perfect chocolate chip cookies pretty much nonstop over here. It’s starting to become a problem for a couple of reasons.

Number 1: I’m gaining weight. For serious. Can’t stop, won’t stop with the cookie consumption.

Number 2: I have no desire to bake any other type of dessert, ever. I want cookies and nothing but cookies. Gimme all the cookies.

So, as a human being, number 1 sucks a lot. As a food blogger who has to come up with new baking recipes to keep y’all happy, number 2 sucks a lot.

I think I need to go on strike against the cookies.

Anyway, the other day I compromised with myself. I made cookies AND a new dessert for you guys. Seems reasonable, right?

I took a super simple dump cake recipe and spiced it up with a hefty sprinkling of peanut butter cups. Remember this chocolate dump cake? Same idea, new topping.

This is a really dense, fudgy cake. There is no frosting, which I generally do NOT like in a cake, but it works in this one. Promise. If you’re looking for an even fudgier dessert, give my homemade brownies a try. They’re to die for.

Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!
