Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

We just celebrated my hubby's birthday.  He LOVES chocolate (we're a match made in Heaven).  So when I was trying to decide what kind of birthday cake to make him, I knew it had to be some kind of chocolate cake.

I have made him a chocolate chocolate cake, a chocolate strawberry cake, a chocolate and toffee cake, a chocolate and cream cake.  So when I came across THIS RECIPE, I thought it would be the perfect addition to my repertoire of cakes for my Honey.

 Talk about AMAZING!!!  We all absolutely loved it!

I made only two minor changes.  1.)  I only used 8 oz. cream cheese instead of the 10 oz. it calls for in the frosting.  2.)  I didn't have any half and half, so I used whipping cream in the chocolate-peanut butter glaze.  Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly.

Well, I guess I shouldn't say exactly.  I let the glaze firm up then piped it on top and around the bottom of the cake.  Then I topped all of that with chopped mini Reese's peanut butter cups.

So, there you have it-my slightly adapted version.

You really should give it a try.

Mmmm...this looks DELISH! There is nothing better than chocolate paired with peanut butter. I think I will need to make this for Matt's birthday. :)
