    I’ve made this recipe multiple times and I get the highest praises each time I make it. In fact, friends and family request this cake all the time 🙂 The key to the icing is making sure you use enough peanut butter to make the icing thicker to drizzle. I also top the icing with chocolate chips…can’t have enough chocolate.
    Also – do not substitute regular peanut butter for chunky – chunky changes the consistency and it does NOT work!
    Enjoy – this is one of our favorites!
