I wanted to make a chocolate cake with peanut butter filling and found a recipe that called for a cake mix--I never use cake mixes!

I found another recipe for a scratch cake with mint filling and combined the two--of course if you prefer a mint filling, I'd be happy to provide!

I made this for my many siblings and got raves!

Update--I just made this again for my sister's birthday party. Everyone loved it! I decided to use self-rising flour and changed the frosting to a simple cream/chocolate.
