Just made this tonight and oh, my!
YUM YUM YUM!! I didn't have buttermilk, didn't want to try to make buttermilk with vinegar, so I just used regular milk. The peanut butter doesn't seem to set up, but the icing on top does. Messy when you cut it, but OH SO GOOD when you eat it! Thank you for sharing this recipe!!
