READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by Chef Mommie

I had this at my parents house today. My Daddy made it and we all loved it. If you love peanut butter and chocolate, You WILL love this!!! Great for Church socials and other gatherings. ***Note*** Wherever you see "(*optional)", that is where my Daddy added that little something extra into the original recipe. I hope you try it and like it!

This is a decadently rich yummy cake & I used all the optional choices. You're only able to eat a tiny bit so it's great for a crowd. Just make sure you have milk in the house because you'll need it after eating a slice of this baby. I made homemade marshmallows (Alton Brown's recipe) & used them & it was a nice touch. Will truly make this one again -thanks for such a lovely recipe.
