This has to be one of the most scrumptious, quick, and thrifty recipes I’ve come across lately. I was perusing my local Dollar Tree and stumbled upon the most decadent cake mix for $1- Simply titled Betty Crocker Decadent Supreme Chocolate Mousse cake mix in a box. I had been looking for ingredients on the Internet for a peanut butter cake recipe and found it using simple cake mix, pudding, and peanut butter. What a delicacy and a great way to use up those peanut butter jars I’ve been talking about! The original recipe called for a cake mix, added pudding mix, peanut butter to cover, and then mousse or pudding as an icing. But this made it easier! If you can’t find the mousse cake at your local dollar store, you can improvise by adding pudding to your cake mix, and top with pudding (reduced by 1/2 cup or whip up a mousse packet). Can you believe this cake costs $1 to make?
