Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

{print this recipe}
I love chocolate.  I love peanut butter.  The only thing I love more than those two things is chocolate and peanut butter together.  For me, this cake is heavenly - and it is SO easy to make.

I forgot to take a picture before serving the cake!  We did enjoy it...

Source: I got the recipe from my mom - I think it was originally from Paula Deen or maybe Ina Garten but I wasn't able to find a recipe online to link to.

1 (18.25-ounce) package devil’s food cake mix
1 (3.8-ounce) package chocolate instant pudding mix
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
4 large eggs
1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
1 (10-ounce) package swirled milk chocolate and peanut butter morsels (or mixture of chocolate and peanut butter OR all peanut butter chips)
Garnish:  confectioners’ (powdered) sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350°.  Grease and flour a 10-cup fluted pan.
2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, and sugar.  Add oil, water, and eggs; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.  Stir in sour cream and chocolate/peanut butter chips.  Spoon into prepared pan.
3. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes.  Remove from pan, and cool completely on a wire rack.
4. Sift confectioners’ sugar over top of cake.
