Pour into two greased cake pans. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 20 – 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Leave to cool slightly and then turn out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

Icing:
Beat the cream cheese, butter, cocoa powder, vanilla essence and icing sugar together. Add a little milk until the mixture becomes soft and spreadable.

To finish:
Sandwich the two cakes together with some of the icing. Spread the remaining icing on top and around the cake. Top with chocolate covered peanuts or shortbread.
