This cake was simply delicious! I made it for a friend's birthday and now all of my friends want me to make it for their birthdays! If you like peanut butter, chocolate, and cream cheese, this recipe will be perfect!

I just didn't think this was very good? The cake was just a box cake so I guess I expected a lot from the other two layers. No one in my house enjoyed this. Sorry I had high hopes.

I tried to make the chocolate topping, but it hardened up so much that it was not spreadable. I served it with just the peanut butter topping and it was great! My coworkers described this as "smooth." I agree, tasty without being achingly sweet.

The review is for the peanut butter filling and the cake. I did my cake a little different. A 2 layer 9 in round cake with the peanut butter filling in the middle and frosting with regular chocolate frosting. I added little peanut butter filled chocolates around the outside as a decoration. This was soooo good! WILL DEFINITELY make AGAIN!

I made this cake because I love Chocolate and Peanut Butter! I ended up using it for my brother's birthday. Everyone loved the cake! The cake was pretty simple to make and I had no trouble with any of the layers! Will definitely make this again!

I'm not a big peanut butter fan, but i was intrigued by the peanut butter/cream cheese mixture..the cake was a hit, already being requested for multiple birthdays, the only problem i had was the chocolate icing, i just used another chocolate icing on this website, and everything came out perfect, i wouldn't waste my time trying to make this chocolate icing, and use another..totally worth it
