Peanutty Chocolate Cake
Source: The Pampered Chef
1 (18.25 ounce) box devil's food cake mix
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
9 (0.6 ounce) peanut butter cup candies
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup (3 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons peanuts, chopped
Lightly spray Stoneware Fluted Pan with vegetable oil using Kitchen Spritzer or brush with vegetable oil using Pastry Brush.
Place cake mix in Classic Batter Bowl.
In Small Batter Bowl, combine sour cream and eggs; whisk until smooth using Stainless Steel Whisk. Add sour cream mixture to cake mix; mix until smooth using Mix 'N Scraper. Using Large Scoop, place 12 scoops of batter into bottom of pan; spread evenly. Arrange peanut butter cup candies in a circular pattern over batter. Top with remaining batter, spreading evenly.
Microwave cake on HIGH 11 to 14 minutes or until Cake Tester inserted near center comes out clean. (Cake will be slightly moist on top near center.) Remove to Stackable Cooling Rack; let stand 10 minutes. Loosen cake from sides of pan. Carefully invert cake onto Round Platter.
Place peanut butter in Small Micro-Cooker. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds or until melted; stir until smooth using Skinny Scraper. Pour peanut butter evenly over top of cake, allowing it to drip down sides.
Place chocolate morsels and oil in same micro-cooker. Microwave on HIGH 20 to 40 seconds or until melted and smooth. Drizzle chocolate evenly over peanut butter topping. Coarsely chop peanuts using Food Chopper; sprinkle over top of cake. Slice and serve using Slice 'N Serve.

Cook's Tip: To easily drizzle chocolate, place a small resealable plastic food storage bag inside Measure-All cup. Pour melted chocolate into corner of bag. Twist top of bag; secure with Twixit! Clip. Using Paring Knife, cut a small tip off corner of bag to allow the chocolate to flow through.
To bake in a conventional oven, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until cake tester inserted near center comes out clean.
If using a microwave oven without a built-in turntable, rotate cake after 6 minutes of cooking.
