A yummy, melt-in-your-mouth cake! If you like Reese's peanut butter cups, you will LOVE this!

I got this recipe from a Southern Living cookbook. My version calls for a 1/2 c of cocoa powder in the cake and for the icing. Also mine doesn't call for the oil to be mixed in with the peanut butter, we just warm it in the microwave until it reaches a smoother consistency. The cake is FABULOUS!
