I took this to a potluck dinner and it was gone in no time with excellent reviews. I used a triple chocolate cake mix, then sprinkled peanut butter chips on top before baking. It turned out more like a cake than bars, so next time I will likely use a jelly roll pan. The cake was super moist and the peanut butter cream cheese was a perfect compliment.
