very moist and rich...being on a tight budget i skipped the peanut butter morsels and pecans but still very good. everyone in my house gives this 5 stars. i don't think that we will have to worry about it lasting very long.

I whipped this up this evening for a coworker's b-day tomorrow. It looks smells Yummy! I uploaded a pic, hope it looks good! BTW, I skipped the pecans and peanut butter chips and used 2 cups of semi-sweet choc chips (1 in the mix, 1 on top). thanks!

Very yummy cake. I cooked mine in a 9x13 cake pan. I did not use the peanut butter chips (though I think they would be yummy) because DS does not care for peanut butter. I topped it with milk chocolate M&M's which the teenagers loved. Half of it disappeared the first day!
