Reviews for Chocolaty Peanut Butter Cake
"Ugh! I think it's peanut butter that affects the taste. I won't make this again - and regret having done it at all ! Grammy"
"Can I give zero stars? I put into cupcake liners and the marshmallows made a gooey mess. Liners stuck to cupcake pan. Inside of cake too crumbly to bite into. Second batch attempted shorter cooking time but still a mess. Peanut butter tasted bland/kinda off too."
"Good cake, easy to make. I used peanut butter chips for half of the chocolate chips."
"Easy to make, I had a German Chocolate Cake mix. Was on the dry side. Sticky on the bottom. Took this to church, as people took pieces it feel apart on them. I won't make it again. Came home with about half in pieces, so I made some chocolate pudding and some cool whip and made a trifle. My family will eat it fixed this way."
"Easy to make and very moist. Will definitely make it again. Doesn't need frosting."
"The bottom was sticky, had peanut butter taste, yet a bit on the dry side.Frosting - yes, needs some. I won't make it again.KLcakes"
"I thought this cake was good, not great. I used a milk chocolate cake mix because I thought it would go well with peanut butter. I could definitely taste the peanut butter flavor, but maybe the chocolate chips on top weren't enough for me. I doubt I'd make it again."
"Very good and easy cake to make. Doesn't need frosting because the chocolate chips make a nice topping. I didn't have a plan chocolate cake mix so I used devil's food. Worked just as well."

"I would add a bit more peanut butter next time I make it. :)"
"we all liked this cake, but my 58 year old son raved about it. I think I will use 3 cups marshmallows next time. They melt right into the cake."
"I used sugar free cake mix, reduced fat peanut butter, and egg substitute and it turned out great. I also sprinkled with 1/2 c. chocolate chips and 1/2 c. peanut butter chips. I would make it again in a 10" x 15" pan next time."
"Very yummy! I used half chocolate chips and half white chocolate. If you want more peanut butter flavor, use peanut butter chips."
"This was a great moist cake. I skipped the marshmellows, but added some mini chocolate chips to the batter and put regular choc chips on the top. Everbody loved it. Will definitely make again."

"Great recipe! The cake is light and fluffy. Chock full of P'nut butter flavor! And the marshmallows are a Nice added touch. Going to make it again and again and again. . . . . . : - )"
"Good for a change from plain old boxed chocolate cake."
"Yummy! I did notice my marshmallows were a little discolored at the bottom of the cake -- I thought it would just be melty and gooey. It tasted fine but looked burned -- though it wasn't. I shared it at work and got rave reviews any way! Very moist. mmmm... now I want to make it again!"
"I've made this cake many times and love it!!"
"my husband really enjoyed this cake - he said it wasnt too sweet - just right. I will def. be adding this to my list of desserts I make for catering"

"This cake was very tasty, but the peanut butter flavor disappeared after the first day or so. The cake crumbled easily when first cut (held together better on the following days). The marshmallows melted and added nothing to the flavor--definitely omit them."
"So delicious! Everyone that tries this cake loves it!"
"Great, easy cake. Had to give some away as I'm home today....temptation!"
"Easy quick recipe. One of our favorites. Try adding a little peanut butter extract for more peanut butter flavor."
"I made this with 1cp chocolate chips stirred into batter last. omitted the marshmellows, then poured the batter into a greased round fluted cake pan. it had to bake a little longer, about 45mins. or with toothpick test. then when it was completely cool I sprinkled powdered sugar on top. it turned out great!! vjm"
"This cake actually improves when it sits overnight under plastic wrap. It makes it more moist and less chewy."
