Snickers Layer Cake is a candy lover's perfect cake. Layers of chocolate, caramel and peanut butter nougat frosting combine to make an unforgettable dessert.

We really need to work on becoming a society that celebrates more than just life changing, physically demanding accomplishments.

Like I understand that marathon running is having “a moment” right now, but can we talk about how much Halloween candy I can eat without getting sick?

Or the fact that I’ve binge watched all of the best shows on Netflix? Or my impressive collection of handbags? Can’t any of that that count for something? Not all accomplishments look like muscular calves and rock hard abs, after all.

I might be squishy, but I’ve always got chocolate in my purse and I can give you the latest on the Blake Shelton/Gwen Stefani drama. And that has to count for something in this world.

For the record, I am not a fan of the Blake and Gwen romance. Doesn’t anyone stop to breathe after a divorce?

Do we all just run around dating all willy nilly these days? For the love, people – this isn’t high school. Take a moment to get your crap together and maybe take up a new hobby. Knitting is always useful – people love scarves! Or woodworking? There’s something to be said for a hand-carved elephant sculpture. But immediately stepping out with the Hollaback girl? Maybe not the best route to emotional stability.

Speaking of my many accomplishments, let's talk about this cake that I carefully created. It’s layers of chocolate cake with peanut butter nougat frosting, caramel, peanuts, and chocolate ganache.

Of course not.
