"I make this cake every time I have dinner guests and it always the biggest hit of the meal!!! Everyone thinks I make it from scratch because it tastes like nothing like any cake they have ever had. It's so easy and so tasty!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 23, 2010

"This cake is easy to make and has a great peanut butter taste. However, I suggest using a binding agent like maybe butter to hold together chips on top. They immediately fall off when slicing and eating just making a mess."
