    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If you only make one cake this month, then this is one you will have to try. Better than any dessert that is served in a fancy restaurant. This cake can be prepared up to 2 days in advance, covered with a cake dome and refrigerated until ready to serve. To save time prepare the crust a day ahead. This is one dessert you should not pass up! Plan ahead this needs to chill for a minimum of 5 hours before serving. Cooking time is 5 hours chilling time.

      This is death by peanut butter (and chocolate)!! It tastes like Reese's pieces with a thick layer of rich chocolate! I made this for my husband's birthday and the alterations I made were that I added a chocolate mousse layer on the bottom (I thought it needed more chocolate but I don't think it would) and I had to use plain cookies for the crust b/c I accidentally burnt the oreos (don't ask). But I think the plain crust was nice b/c it was soooooo rich! This is to die for and worth all that fat and calories!
