If you have a craving for peanut butter and chocolate, look no more. This is a sinfully delicious dessert so don't say I didn't warn you! The very thin layer of peanut butter between the cake and icing makes it especially rich.

You can use reduced fat peanut butter, cream cheese and Lite or sugar free Cool Whip...but that doesn't mean that this cake is good for you. ;-) Still, a small piece garnished with a mini peanut butter cup and your craving will be satiated. Guaranteed!
