"Very good recipe, it worked well and the kids loved it. I would have liked a stronger peanut butter taste but that's me, maybe I will add some more PB next time. Whipped cream because we didn't have icecream, very good!"

"This was a delicious cake and so easy. Never made any cakes in a crock pot but this was very good."

"I made 1-1/2 recipe because my crock pot is larger than 1-1/2 qts. I used more peanut butter, but it still did not have a strong enough peanut butter taste. We all agreed that this was just okay. I will not make it again."

"This is fantastic! I followed the recipe, and it was a big hit. I'll definitely be making this again; it's the perfect dessert size for two adults and a kiddo on a busy week night!"

"Wonderful! Made it 2x now. Once the way the recipe says and once chocolate version. I used nutella in place of the peanut butter and served that version with mint chocolate chip ice cream. very good :)"

"I just LOVED this but it just made a tiny, tiny bit. I think it is made in a little bitty crock pot. Is that correct? What do I need to do to increase the recipe?"

"Very disappointing, odd flavor. No one in my adult family liked it and we all "love" dessert. Was a waste of time and ingredients. I'll stick to the original hot fudge cake recipe."

"Very yummy, except...I forgot to add the sugar to the cocoa mixture. DO NOT leave out the additional sugar (my big boo boo!). Next time I will try adding the chocolate chips, as well. Great dessert~"
