    Wow, what can I say, I'm at lost for words, this sounds soooooo fabulous. Must make this one maybe tomorrow, I have all the ingredients. Sounds similar to one I had at the hospital when I worked there, but don't think the person that made it shared the right recipe. Been looking for one like that for years, thanks for the great post.

    If you love peanut butter and chocolate like I do you should NOT be left alone with this cake.

    Oh wow, does this sound like a chocolate and peanut butter lovers PARADISE! I will have to make this the next time my daughter and fam are visiting (otherwise I'd probably eat the whole thing by myself!!).
