As I have mentioned many times, I love peanut butter and chocolate. My girls were headed home from college recently... and I wanted to try a new recipe. I found this recipe at Epicurious. I thought it was fabulous. I think it was a little too rich for my hubby but the rest of us loved it. The cake part isn't overly sweet - kind of dark, rich chocolate. I thought the frosting was fabulous. I will make both again. I think I will use the frosting for other things as well. I was a little intimidated by the frosting. I don't think I have ever made a true Buttercream Frosting. I followed the directions - it turned out beautifully. Just sayin... I could eat it by the spoonful!
I doubled the recipe and made a 9 x 13. Enjoy!
