Chocolate Cake With Peeps Sunflower

Hi All !!
I hope you have a wonderful sunny day today !!

We were invited to dinner at my brother in law house last weekend. I asked my sister in law what can I bring or make. I love to bring something to someone house. She told me to bring dessert. I was thinking to make something without buying any ingredients in the other words use what I have around the pantry. First I was thinking making a pound cake.

Friday night I changed my mind. Instead I made chocolate cake with sunflower peeps. After all Spring is here I want to bring the joy of new life in the nature and corporate with cake.

This recipe is combination of a couple recipe. Everyone seems to love it and I'm glad !!
