Anything chocolate and peanut butter has to be tried. I found this on Cookin-At-Home.com. The picture caught my attention and then the recipe. My guests and family loved it. Even my husband who tries to stay away from sugar liked it.

The recipe title is cake, but it is more of a cross between a cake and a brownie.

Try it, you'll like it!!!!
