Peanut Butter Chocolate Layer Cake

 

A Peanut Butter Chocolate Layer Cake, way better than the old fashioned kind. With a layer of creamy peanut butter frosting sandwiched between layers of moist chocolate cake, then covered with a creamy peanut butter frosting and topped off with Reese’s chunks … RU Kidding Meee !!!!
