Chocolate Peanut Delight Recipe

Peanut lovers will appreciate this yummy dessert I dreamed up. A brownie-like crust is packed with nuts, topped with a fluffy peanut butter layer and covered with whipped topping and more nuts. It was so well received that I made it for a local restaurant where I used to work. -Karen Kutruff, New Berlin, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 6, 2013

I just made this for a dinner party and this was wonderful. I did read the reviews and used the brownies instead of the cake mix. Everyone loved it and took some home later, This was very rich and delicious. I'll definitely save this recipe.

MY REVIEW

By reading the other reviews, I substituted the cake mix with Dark Chocolate brownie mix and followed the brownie instructions. I also omittedt the peanuts. It was a creamy dessert. I fixed it for a phase 10 party and it was gone in minutes.

Makes a nice holiday dessert or potluck item.

MY REVIEW

Baking powder added to the cake mix would make it softer. Add the amount of baking powder that would be called for in a from scratch cake recipe.
