1 box Duncan Hines chocolate cake mix
1 - 8oz. Philadelphia cream cheese (softened)
1 can Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated)
1 cup Jif peanut butter
2 - 8oz. Cool Whip (thawed)
1 jar hot fudge ice cream topping
Prepare and bake cake according to box directions (in a 9 x 13 cake pan). Cool cake to room temperature. Use the handle end of a wooden spoon to poke about 30 holes into the cake (all the way to the bottom). In a mixer add cream cheese--beat. Add condensed milk and peanut butter--beat. Add ONE of the thawed 8oz. Cool Whips--beat until smooth. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the top of the cake. Keep smoothing the cream cheese mixture with a spatula so that the holes get filled with the cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate the cake for at least 6 hours. Remove from refrigerator, spread the other 8oz. Cool Whip over the top of the cake. Drizzle the hot fudge topping over the Cool Whip. Sprinkle chopped peanuts over the top of the cake.
