Oh my goodness, the ultimate dessert has finally reached my mouth.
I saw this on Pinterest last week and it took me almost a whole week to finally make it and now I need it out of my house. I will eat the entire pan without any issues whatsoever. When I saw the picture it didn’t even make sense to me. How could it look so delicious? Could it possibly be as delicious as the picture made it look? How had I never come across this before??
I traced the picture back to The Girl Who Ate Everything and saw she got the recipe from a reader who wrote in. Come on Turtle readers… start sending me recipes like this!!
It’s really, really fabulous. Your hips might regret it, but it’s worth it.

In other related peanut butter news… I also made a cake for a friend’s birthday this weekend. Her husband requested a chocolate cake with peanut butter icing so I went to my trusted Smitten Kitchen recipe. I’ve made this a few times and it never fails to bring rave reviews. I mean, come on guys, she’s gotten 812 comments on it… it’s pretty darn good!
