Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides; spray with cooking spray. Prepare cake batter as directed on package, adding 1 pkg. dry pudding mix; beat 2 min. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 25 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, prepare filling, frosting and chocolate curls. For filling, beat remaining pudding mix and milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 min. Stir in peanut butter until blended. For frosting, microwave 3 oz. chocolate in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until melted, stirring after 30 sec. Add cream cheese and butter; beat with mixer until blended. Gradually beat in sugar. For chocolate curls, see Tip.
  • Use foil handles to lift cake from pan; cut crosswise in half. Place 1 cake half, top-side down, on plate; spread with peanut butter filling. Cover with remaining cake half, top-side up. Spread top and sides with chocolate frosting. Press nuts halfway up sides of cake; top with chocolate curls.

How to Make Chocolate Curls

Microwave 3 oz. BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate and 1/2 tsp. shortening in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 30 sec.; stir. Microwave 30 to 40 sec. or until chocolate is almost melted; stir until completely melted. Spread into thin layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until firm, but still pliable. Push metal spatula firmly onto baking sheet, under the chocolate, to make curls. (If chocolate is too firm, let stand a few minutes at room temperature; refrigerate again if it becomes too soft.)

Next time I will make the curls out of milk chocolate since I do not like semi-sweet chocolate. The filling was great but the cake layers tended to slide while trying to frost. I think I will bake in square pans next time to make the assembly easier.

I made it in 2 8-inch round pans instead and it turned out fine except I forgot to put foil in the pans first and the cake tore a little when it was time to get them out. My frosting came out a little thin, I don't know why but it wasn't thick and creamy like the photo. Flavor was great.
