"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."

"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."
