Mmmm Mmmm Good!

I know without a doubt that many of you gals out there are chocolate lovers. I have a few close friends that on occasion would sell their children for a bit of chocolate. I too love it, but even more than chocolate...I LOVE peanut butter!

The other day I was busy cleaning the house and had a sweet tooth. I decided to find a recipe online that would doctor up a cake mix. I ended up making a 'Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cake'. Here are the ingredients. If you are on a diet...hide your eyes!

The kids loved it and I loved it too. Here is a picture of my 13 year old master taste tester. He requested a second piece!

Since it was a hit around here, I thought I would share the recipe.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Recipe

1 box of yellow cake mix
1/2 Cup peanut butter
*make the yellow cake as directed, only add 1/2 Cup peanut butter. Bake and cool completely.

8 squares of unsweetened chocolate
2 Cups peanut butter
1 Cup powdered sugar
1/2 Cup chocolate syrup
*I melted all ingredients in a double boiler. (I didn't add the powdered sugar, it was sweet enough for us) Frost cake!
