Good Eats: Peter Paul Mounds Cake

OK, so we can't take full credit for this one. Actually, it's a favorite of Matthew's family, but no one could remember or find the recipe when we asked.

Last year we researched several entries for this on the Internet and then compared it with family recollections and memories. This one came out the closest to what everyone remembered.

It takes forever to make, and it's a mess, but it tastes incredible!
