Layers of chocolate and peanut butter make this definitely the Best Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake I have had so far.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to share this amazing cake on the Better Homes & Garden blog.  I am participating in their “Month of Chocolate” recipes, so be prepared for some great chocolate recipes this month.

Whenever we go out to eat, I love to check out the dessert menu.  It doesn’t matter if we have been to that restaurant a thousand times before…I am still going to sit and drool over the desserts.  It’s like I have a thing for desserts or something.

Now some times we leave room for dessert, and sometimes we walk away.  Mainly because I either ate way too much dinner, or there is some crazy dessert already waiting in our kitchen at home.

But then sometimes we say no to dessert because we can’t justify the price.  Who wants to pay $9 for a slice of cake?  Especially when I know that I can bake an entire cake for that price.

A few weeks ago BHG asked me to guest post for the “Month of Chocolate” on the Delish Dish blog.   Well, let’s just think about it…heck yes!!!

I do love a good chocolate recipe, so I was so excited to search through the archives and find some delicious chocolate recipes to give the BruCrew twist to.
