1 tsp vanilla
3 large eggs
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed

1 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp vanilla
Topping: 2-3 Peanut Butter Goo Goo Clusters, roughly chopped

For both cakes, line the bottom of a 6 to 7-inch springform pan with parchment paper and spray the paper with cooking spray.
Instructions for Chocolate Layer:

  1. Melt 6 ounces of chopped chocolate and butter in a heavy saucepan over medium low heat. Stir until chocolate and butter are melted and smooth.
  2. Add sugar and salt and reduce heat to low. Cook while stirring for about one minute, until sugar starts to dissolve. Add vanilla.
  3. Remove pan from heat. Whisk in eggs, one at a time. The mixture will look smooth and glossy.
  4. Use a mesh hand sieve to sift cocoa into mixture to prevent lumps. Whisk until the cake batter is smooth.
  5. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for about 25 minutes. The center of the cake should be just firm to the touch, but be careful to not overbake the cake or it will be dry.
  6. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
  7. Remove cake from springform pan and place on a serving plate.

  3. Gently fold egg whites into rest of ingredients until well-incorporated.
  4. Pour batter into springform pan and bake for about 25 minutes.
  5. Remove cake from oven and let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
  6. Prepare chocolate glaze while peanut butter cake is cooling.

 

Instructions for preparing the glaze and assembling cake:

  1. Melt 4 ounces of chopped chocolate and 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter in the same saucepan you used to make the chocolate cake.
  2. When melted and smooth, remove the pan from heat.
  3. Add milk, honey and vanilla and stir until smooth and glossy.
  4. Pour about 1/3 of the glaze on the chocolate cake. Spread with spatula.
  5. Gently take peanut butter cake out of springform pan and place it on top of the chocolate cake with glaze
  6. Pour the rest of the chocolate glaze in the middle of the peanut butter cake layer. Use a spatula to spread the glaze evenly over the cake, allowing the glaze to run down the sides.
  7. Sprinkle with chopped Peanut Butter Goo Goo Clusters
