Halloween Cake [Pumpkin-Marshmallow-Chocolate]

I know this cake isn’t nearly as “elegant” as the previous one I posted, but I promise you it’s just as good. Three layers of dense, spiced pumpkin cake filled with fluffy homemade marshmallow cream (!) and chocolate frosting. Perfect for Halloween and all other occasions.

Ingredients: Cookie

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

3/4 cup peanut butter

1 large egg andĀ 1 large egg yolk, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Marshmallow Fluff Filling (From marshmallowfluff.com)

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened

1 cup confectioners sugar

2 cups marshmallow fluff (about one 7 and 1/2 ounce jar

1 tsp vanilla

Recipe: Cookies (makes about 26 cookies or 13 sandwiches)

Preheat oven to 325F

Cream peanut butter and butter until smooth and creamy, about two minutes. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Mix until combined.

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture in two groups. Make sure to scrap down the sides of the bowl. The dough will be crumbly.

Grease two pans. Roll about a spoonful of dough and put it on the pan. Do not press down with a fork, you will do that later. Put in oven. About 5-8 minutes in open the oven and softly press down the cookies with a fork. (They will be vaguely egg shaped) They are done in 11-15 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes then remove from pans to finish cooling.

Marshmallow Fluff Filling (you can use plain marshmallow fluff- that would taste good too)

Cream all the ingredients in a bowl on high. Very easy and simple. Sandwich about 1 and 1/2 teaspoons on every other cookie.
