A Birthday Treat!!

So what do you ask was the other project of the day? I had friend at work as me to make her something chocolate and peanut butter for her birthday. So I told her if I had time I would, and how could I not? So I spent the last few days going through some new cookbooks. Ok I love to bake, really bake anything, but with 2 jobs atm, I won't deny that if I can cut some corners using mixes to help me I will. So I picked up a couple cake mix books, to see if anything interesting stood out. And I saw this Peanut butter cookie pizza cake. I couldn't pass that up. SO thats what I made. its very simple and looks pretty tasty. And it used a great combo of simple things helping make the busy day not too bad.
Peanut Butter Cookie Pizza Cake:

1 package(18 oz) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1 package (about 18 oz) chocolate cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare the mix
1 cup vanilla frosting
1/2 cup peanut butter
1-2 tbsp milk
1 container (16 oz) chocolate frosting
chocolate peanut butter cups, chopped (optional)
peanut butter chips (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350. Coat two 12/1 inch round pizza pans with nonstick cooking spray. Press cookie dough evenly into one pan. Bake 15-20 min or until edges are golden brown. Cool cookie in pan 20 minutes. Remove from pan, cool completely on wire rack.
2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Fill second pan 1/4 to half full with batter. (reserve remaining cake batter for another use ..I Made a little cake for the hubby.) Bake 10-15 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan 15 minutes. gently remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack.
3. Combine vanilla frosting and peanut butter in small bowl. Gradually stir in milk, 1 tbsp at a time, until mixture is of spreadable consistency.
4. Place cookie on serving plate. Spread peanut butter frosting over cookie. Place cake on top of cookie. Frost top and side of cake with chocolate frosting. Garnish with peanut butter chips and chopped peanut butter cups. Ok I forgot to get the peanut butter cups ha-ha, but the chips I got, and I wrote happy birthday with some of the vanilla frosting. I am sure she will love it, and I think it looks pretty tasty myself!! and am already of thinking of other variations..S'mores or Birthday cake with sugar cookie dough and strawberry and such. MMM! Enjoy it sometime!!
