Peanut Butter Cake

My friend Tammy and I have this serious need for chocolate and peanut butter. I really think it is what has held our friendship together for more than 15 years. I am just kidding, but we really do love, love, love it. When she sent me this recipe, I was ready to make it on the spot. I made the cake a few days later. I seriously fell on the floor when I took a taste of the icing. It should be illegal in all 50 states. It's that good.

Chocolate cake mix
2 c powdered sugar
1/4 c milk or cream
1/4 c of butter, softened
1/2 c peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
Mini Reese Cups or chopped regular size Reese Cups for decoration

Bake the cake in 2 round pans according to package directions. Remove from oven. Cool on wire racks. When I made this cake, I made a double recipe of icing. If you decide to just make a 9x13 size cake then you won't need to double. Mix all of the ingredients until fluffy and desired consistency. You can add more milk or cream if you want it to be more smooth. Ice the cakes and garnish with the Reese Cups. Serve to as few people as possible so you can have more for yourself - lol.
