Rita giving you ideas for Sweetest Day on October 20

Sweetest Day is on Saturday, October 20 this year. Here’s a recipe that pulls out all the stops - peanut butter and chocolate.

Maybe you’d like to make this for your sweetheart!



  • 1 box chocolate fudge cake mix  (Betty Crocker Super Moist preferred)
  • The same amount of water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
  • 1-1/4 cups Hershey’s chocolate syrup, room temperature (or your favorite chocolate flavored syrup)
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 20-30  Reese miniature peanut butter cups, cut into 4ths 


  • Preheat oven to 350, or 325 for dark or nonstick pan.
  • Spray or grease and lightly flour 13x9” pan.
  • Make and bake cake as directed on box using the time for a 13x9” pan.
  • Cool completely.
  • Poke holes in cake - I use the tip of a wooden spoon for bigger holes, but you can use a fork or whatever. Pour 1 cup chocolate syrup over cake. Let sit until most of the syrup soaks into the cake.
  • Separately, beat peanut butter and whipped topping together. Spread over cake.
  • Scatter peanut butter cup pieces on top.
  • Drizzle rest of chocolate syrup (1/4 cup) on top.
  • Cover and refrigerate cake, but bring to room temperature before serving. Leftover cake should be stored in refrigerator.
