Leftover Candy Cake with Chocolate Marshmallow Glaze

A cake for our friends, the Whites.  I found the cake recipe on a website called http://www.cdkitchen.com and the glaze recipe on another website called http://www.ezinearticles.com.  Smells heavenly!  The cake is another way to use some leftover Halloween candy.  I used Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, both the chocolate and the white kind, in the cake and then chopped up some more chocolate ones to put on top of the cake.


2 cups coarsely chopped leftover candy

2 3/4 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup (2 sticks) butter

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 eggs

1/4 teaspoon almond extract (I left this out, a lot of people don’t like it)

1 cup sour cream


1/3 cup sugar

3 tablespoons water

1 cup chocolate chips

3 tablespoons marshmallow creme

1 – 2 tablespoons hot water

1 Preheat oven to 350.  Butter a tube or bundt pan (10 – 12 cup capacity) and dust with fine bread crumbs.  (I just used the baking Pam with flour.)  Tap out excess crumbs.

2  Sift together flour, salt and baking powder.  Cream butter until soft, add vanilla, almond extract and sugar and mix well.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each.  On low, alternate adding dry ingredients with sour cream.  Place 1 1/2 cups batter in prepared pan.  Add candies to remaining batter, fold in gently.  Pour this batter into pan over plain batter.  Bake 1 hour or until cake tester comes out clean.  Cool 15 minutes.  Remove from pan and let cool.

3  Prepare glaze:  bring sugar and 3 tablespoons water to a boil.  Remove from heat and immediately add chocolate chips, stirring until melted.  (I had to use a whisk to get it smooth.)  Blend in marshmallow creme and enough hot water until glaze is of pouring consistency.
