Reese's Lovers Cake {fancy-up a boxed cake}

We had company over last night and I made dessert.  A rarity apparently cause my kids asked if it was his birthday since I was making cake. Um, No.  
Any-who, I had bought a bag of mini Reese's pieces (the kind you find in the baking aisle) last week with the plans to put them in some granola bars, you know to make them healthy. ;)  It is widely know that I LOVE all things Reese's.  Flash forward a week, I had yet to make granola bars, but I HAD successfully succeeded in eating half the bag (don't judge me, Ben was gone all last week so I was single-mommin' it.  Enough said.)
So with the left-over Reese's, a boxed cake mix, a can of frosting, and a bit of peanut butter, I whipped up this
Reese's Lovers Cake.  
Super QUICK, super EASY, super DELICIOUS!!
Make your cake per directions (I used yellow).   Let cool completely.
Add peanut butter to frosting.  I did about 2 heaping tablespoons.  Stir well.  Taste, if you want more peanut butter goodness, throw in another spoonful. 
Frost cake.
Sprinkle with Reese's pieces.  (Smack you kids hand when they try to pick them off.  Just kidding.....only sort-of)
This would be so, so yummy with chopped up Reese's cups on it too.  My mouth is watering!!
