  1. I just made this and it is SO good!! I am visiting my mom, and I had to make a test cake this morning, because her oven runs very hot. I will be making a birthday cake tomorrow for my DD, and I wanted to make sure that it won't burn! Anyway, this came together very quickly! I halved the recipe and also substituted half and half for the cream, because that's all I had on hand. Even after several generous "samples" by my 5 year old DD and myself, there was still enough to frost a 9 inch round cake! Very yummy!! Thanks for delicious and easy recipe! UPDATE- I rated this before I had a chance to taste this with the cake! Oh my!!!!! SOOOOO delicious!! We ate this on top of a gluten-free chocolate cake, slightly warm, and it was pure heaven!! It reminded me of the chocolate lava cake that we used to have sometimes before we went GF. Just perfect!!! I will be making this again and again. I also want to say that the peanut butter complimented this recipe very well without being overpowering. Awesome!!!
