    Zoe @ Home's Note:

    I love the chocolate/peanut butter taste! I found this in a cooking magazine, it originally called for Nestle Crunch Bars, but I don't care for those, so I decided to use the peanut butter cups. Try a different candy bar and find your favorite! I am not positive about the prep time, but it includes chilling.

      I read the reviews before making this and couldn't decide if I should use cake or brownies. So I used a combination, a layer of chocolate cake and a layer of brownies. I also used 1 1/2 recipes for the peanut butter sauce because a reviewer said they couldn't taste it. I used the chopped up peanut butter cups but also threw in a chopped up Reeses Nutrageous bar. I took it to work as part of a potluck lunch. I was totally surprised when my frosted sugar cookies were gone before this and that I didn't have an empty dish at the end of the day. But, we did enjoy the leftovers at home.

      This was really good. I couldn't taste the peanut butter sauce real well so next time I might double the peanut butter sauce recipe.
