This cake is WONDERFUL!!!!! Even though its not South Beach Friendly I will definitely make it again. Its very versatile too as its not just one for Halloween! I got this great recipe from: VeryBestBaking. I ended up only using peanut butter chips and semi sweet chocolate chips and it worked out great. I also ended up using more chips than it called for on top and loved the extra texture of the hardened layer ontop. Everyone at the party totally LOVED this cake and this really went so fast I didn't have time to get any Pict's. This is a piece I had left over... and even it didn't last long!
