Vixxy P’s ‘Now that’s just ridiculous’ Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Oreo cake

Well, finally we got our snow, didn’t we?! For about 24hrs! Some people love the snow (like me) and some people hate it.  But either way it happened and I was thankful that we didn’t have to go anywhere or do anything while it was here.  My boyfriend put his feet up and watched footballers run round a snowy pitch, and I decide to go do what any baker does on a snowy day…experiment!

The base of this recipe is my mum’s double chocolate cake, but with a Vixxy P twist!  I always have to take things that bit further!
