Recipe by ColCadsMom

One of my all time favorite desserts is a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. My Mom clipped this recipe out of her local newspaper for me to try. I haven't made it yet, but I hope to soon. As written it should frost a 2 layer cake.

I do think it needs to cool a bit before adding peanut butter. It was a bit runny. But still very delicious
