  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in bowl. Add milk, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla and stir. Add boiling water and whip on high speed for about a minute.
  3. Pour 1¼ cups of batter into mold and bake for 35 minutes. Once cake is cool, slice top to level off, then cut cake into two layers.
  4. Combine peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and confectioners sugar in food processor on high speed. Remove from processor and roll between two pieces of wax paper. Cut out into circle.
  5. Create bottom ganache layer. Pour 5 tablespoons of heavy cream into saucepan and heat on low. Chop up 1¾ giant chocolate bars into small pieces. Once cream is warm enough to easily melt a piece of chocolate, add chocolate in and whisk until smooth. Pour into clean mold and refrigerate.
  6. Place first layer of cake circle, peanut butter layer, and then second layer of cake on top of hardened ganache.
  7. Heat ¾ cup + 3 tablespoons of heavy cream in pot and whisk in 5¼ giant chocolate bars until smooth. Pour over cake and peanut butter layers until sides are filled and top is totally covered.
  8. Refrigerate until hardened. Peel from mold.
