Peanut Butter Chocolate Delight Cake
I absolutely love a good peanut butter cake and I really put 100% effort into baking. However, I have issues making things pretty! My desserts always taste good but I can't ice a cake for anything. I give major credit to those of you who can decorate immaculate works of art it is a difficult endeavor! Josh doesn't like most sweets but one he adores is the Reese's Cups. This delectable dessert is truly the embodiment of a classic Reese's cup in the form of a cake. He has told me that this is the cake to make for his birthday for now on! So, I guess it is a keeper! After a few trial and errors I came up with this recipe and it is amazing! Pair it with some Vanilla Bean ice cream and chocolate syrup and you will be in love!

I like to put the cake in the fridge to let it set but this is just our preference.Serve with a scoop of Vanilla Bean ice cream and a chocolate syrup drizzle and ENJOY!
