One of my dear friends Devon Warren, from Fort Worth, Texas invited me over one night and we made this heavenly dessert, I could not believe how incredibly easy and delicious this cake was! This has to be hands down my favorite cake recipe ever!! She has graciously given me her blessing to share this wonderful dessert with you. The nice thing about this recipe is that there is very little clean-up! Make this for your family tonight and I promise you will not be disappointed!

1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter

 

Directions:

  • Mix ingredients together, then spread mixture evenly on warm cake.

If you want to make this into a 9X13, just double the recipe (a chocolate cake mix would work just as well). You are going to LOVE this recipe!!!
