Peanut Butter Pound Cake with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache

Is there anything better than peanut butter and chocolate together?  Yes, when you add pound cake to the mix.  So when I saw this recipe for Peanut Butter Pound Cake over on Call Me PMC, I knew I had to make it.  I made a different glaze because I wanted to add some chocolate to the recipe.  I’m so glad I did.  It was amazing!!!!  A-MAZE-ING!!!!

The pound cake was moist and had the perfect amount of peanut butter flavor to it.  But then add on the chocolate, peanut butter glaze and man, oh, man.  I could eat it for breakfast!  (Oh wait, I did eat it for breakfast.)
