Fudgy Peanut Butter Brownie Cake

First off, I want to start with saying that this will be the last Try This! Thursday for a while. Every Thursday since October, I have been going hard at finding new recipes for you to try, and now...five months later, I think it's time to take a break. I do hope that you all have enjoyed the recipes I have featured here, and I will be bringing Try This! Thursday back when Summer comes into full swing!

Now, onto the recipe...

I love fudge, I LOVE peanut butter, I definitely love brownies, and do I even have to mention how much I love cake? Can you imagine what phenomena could occur when all of these things collide? It would be world shaking, glass shattering, opera singing, Fudgy Peanut Butter Brownie Cake!
