Therapy Cake

This has got to be one of my all time favorite recipes, not because it tastes absolutely delicious (it is good!), but because making it is really very therapeutic. Here it is.

Therapy Cake
1 cake mix (yellow or white-pudding in the mix)
10-12 peanut butter sandwich cookies
2-3 eggs
1/2 can chocolate frosting
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2-3 T milk

1) Take the sandwich cookies and place them in a sturdy, sealable plastic bag. Grab sturdy tool for smashing (a hammer works well). Smash the cookies into fine crumbs or until all anxiety and stress is relieved.

2) Mix the cake according to directions on box. Fold in cookie crumbs after cake is well mixed.

3) Bake cake at 350 degrees in 13x 9" cake pan according to directions on box.

4) Mix 1/2 can chocolate (or vanilla if you are demented) frosting with 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter and milk until desired consistancy.

5) Frost cake after it has cooled for a half hour. You can use additional sandwich cookies for garnish, or forget it and simply cut a slab of cake and drown your sorrows in chocolate (or vanilla if you are demented)!

And this is therapy cake. It is easy to make, the chocolate rush is great, and who doesn't need to just pound something sometimes? I made it for my daughter's 13th birthday and it was a hit (no pun intended).

I love the name. And somedays I'd rather spend the $85 for a therapist on a quiet hour eating that. :)

Therapy through baking. Doctor Michele approves.
