This recipe has been a favorite in my family for years. 

For the cake layers, use your favorite recipe – either a butter cake recipe or a chocolate cake recipe works fine.

2 c sugar
1 c whipping cream or evaporated milk
1 c creamy peanut butter

You will also need:
Small saucepan
Large spoon

Bring the sugar and the cream to a boil in a small saucepan.  Reduce the heat and cook for two minutes.  Add the peanut butter and bring back to a boil.  Let the mixture cook for about 1 minute.  Stir and remove from the heat. 

Let the frosting cool to room temperature before spreading between the layers and on top of the cake.

Do you think I could also use crunchy peanut butter for this receipe? I am a nut lover.
