Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Snack Cake

Snack cake.

What is it?

Like, what makes one cake good for snack time and another cake only good for dessert? I think we’re all unknowingly discriminating against cake.

I want it to stop. I want it to stop right now.

I hereby declare that all cake is snack cake. Also, all cake is dessert cake. Cake, from here on out, shall be served and eaten anytime the craving hits.


Oh, wait. I mean, I like cake. Yes. I like it a lot. Possibly more than broccoli. Don’t tell my mom.

This cake is just a doctored up cake mix. Easy as pie. Only not. Because it’s not pie, it’s cake.

Am I even making sense anymore? I think all of the chocolate and peanut butter has been going to my head this week.

Send help.
