I've made this several times for family gathers because everyone requests it. I subbed brownies for the cake because I like a firmer texture, and on a family member's suggestions replaced the chips with diced peanut butter cups. Heaven! At the last family dinner I brought it to, my mother in law had to hide the bowl to ensure that everyone got a serving (even though I doubled the recipe), because it's that good! Everyone loves it!
