MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 4, 2015

"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."

"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.

"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."
