PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY CHOCOLATE CAKE

I love chocolate, I love peanut butter and jelly ( I still eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich when ever possible) and baking a chocolate cake with peanut butter and jelly topping is going to the extreme and I loved the result. I have used a mixed berries jelly. Feel free to use any kind of jelly you like.The sweet, salty and bitter combo of peanut butter, jelly and chocolate makes this cake irresistible.

This cake makes the perfect easy, beautiful dessert for a party, or guests. I always make the cake a day or two in advance, and then just finish it with the frosting or topping the day I want to serve it. To freeze the cake, just allow it to cool completely, then wrap it in plastic wrap and freeze for a few days or a week.
