I call this the ultimate snack cake because it's packed with some snack time favourites: chocolate, potato chips, chunky peanut butter and beer! Thrown together as a cake, it is the ultimate sweet and savoury dessert. Good luck not going in for seconds or thirds!

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 8 slices

Source: My own recipe inspired by something called the "Salt Peanut Cake" from the Nickel Diner, Downtown Los Angeles, crossed with my sister-in-law's chocolate stout cake.


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 6 fl oz stout beer (I used Guinness)
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup super chunky peanut butter
  • 2 cups salted potato chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a very deep 6 inch cake pan or two 6 to 8 inch cake pans. In a microwave safe dish, melt 1 cup chocolate chips at 30 second increments until fully melted.

  3. Chop butter and add to warm melted chocolate; stir until smooth. You may have to microwave an additional 10 seconds to get it totally silky.
  4. Slowly add your beer and mix well.
  5. Whisk your two eggs.
  6. Add eggs to chocolate butter beer mixture. Mix well.
  7. In another bigger bowl, whisk together your flour, baking soda, salt, and sugars.

  9. Slowly add the wet chocolate mixture to the dry mixture.
  10. Add yogurt. Mix well. If your batter seems too thick, you can add more beer (yay!) and mix well to thin it out.
  11. Pour batter into greased cake pan.
  12. Bake for 28-30 minutes until toothpick poke test is clear. Let cool.

  14. For your icing, melt the 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl for 30 second increments until smooth.
  15. Time to remove the cake from the pan. If you used a deep cake pan like me, cut horizontally to make 2 layers.
  16. Because I LOVE peanut butter, I spread on an extra tablespoon or two of peanut butter on top of layer one. This is optional. Crush your potato chips. Take half of it and sprinkle on layer one.

  18. Take a two tablespoons of the melty icing and drizzle it on top of the potato chips.
  19. Put cake layer 2 on top, then cover in remaining icing.
  20. Sprinkle with the rest of the crush potato chips.
  21. Good luck keeping away from this! It is SO yummy. Enjoy!
