Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake

This is very tasty as it's a combination of my two favorites. I just had to post it as I see there are other's w/my same taste passions. This can be taken anywhere as the peanut butter frosting sprinkled w/the mini-chocolate chips are a nice contrast together. Can also be made as cupcakes.

This is a very yummy local favorite where I come from. The cake recipe is absolutely to die for! This is my new go-to recipe for chocolate cake- I have made it several times now. The frosting is very good, though next time I make it I will double the batch and add extra peanut butter.

DH rated this as a 10+++ ! I knew he would love this, 2 of his favorite combinations too! I did make this into cupcakes, as we were sharing these with our youth group kids. Next time I'll double the recipe! I didn't have a single one to take home! Thank you Sue! Made for KK's Recipe Tag

Made this for what I thought would be the usual small Thursday morning social here in the park, but after I brought in this cake, word went out fast, & I cut all the pieces in half just so everyone could have a taste! Big success for this VERY NICE TASTING CAKE! I did leave in the brewed coffee (although I had thought about substituting something else for it)! One change I did make was to use extra chunky PB instead of the creamy variety! Thanks much for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my group mates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #31]
