-I forgot to mention above that the cake mix I used isn't all that sweet and together with the peanut butter topping doesn't end up being this over the top sweet dessert. Its delicious and I really enjoy my desserts not too sweet. However, if you do like them sweet, use a brownie mix! You'll thank me!
