instructions
Make the batter
1 Make the batter

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 325°F. In a large bowl, combine the butter and half the chocolate chips. Working in 30 second increments, microwave on high until melted and smooth (or melt in a small pot on the stove, then transfer to a large bowl). Add the granulated sugar, flour, cocoa powder,  baking powder, and 2/3 cup of water; whisk to combine. Add the remaining chocolate chips and stir until just combined.

2 Bake the cake

Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish (or line with parchment paper). Transfer the batter to the prepared dish and spread into an even layer. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with a few moist crumbs. Transfer the baking dish to a cooling rack and let stand at least 1 hour, or until room temperature.

Finely chop the peanuts. In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar, peanut butter spread, and 2 tablespoons of water; whisk to thoroughly combine (add up to 1 tablespoon of water to reach your desired consistency). Add the chopped peanuts and stir to combine. When ready to serve, invert the cooled cake onto a serving dish. Top with the glaze; spread into an even layer. Cut into equal-sized pieces. Enjoy!
