  2. Split the mixture in two parts.
  3. Add the dark chocolate to 1 half of the mixture.
  4. Pour half of the peanut butter mixture onto the peanut crumbs.
  5. Pour all of the chocolate mixture on top & add the rest of the peanut butter mixture on top of that.

  7. Bake in the oven for 30-35 min.
  8. Remove from the oven. Place the cake in the fridge leaving it in the cake tin until it is completely chilled.

*This recipe works best if the cake is cooled in the fridge overnight before removing it from the tin.
