"I made this for church fellowship gatherings and it was always the first to go. I have used various flavoured chips and it always turns out delicious."

"If you don't want the cake type bottom layer, then use your favorite brownie recipe. This was a hit at bowling today. This is easy to assemble and has great results. We are adding this to our recipe collection."
"Phenominal! The bottom was a bit spongy and very chocolaty, the top was a rice krispy treat that was oh so yummy with the peanut butter! I am a teacher and made this for the teachers in the school...it was devoured! Thank you so much for sharing this delicious recipe! xo LA :-)"
"very easy and good. I added a little sugar and cocoa to the bottom layer.
I also added some chocolate chips to the top layer after baking.
lots of compliments."
"These are really good, especially the bottom layer - all wonderful ingredients together. I usually like things less sweet, but I agree with other reviewers - these actually weren't sweet enough for me. Someone suggested adding more sugar to the bottom layer, but I think adding sugar to the chocolate and peanut butter part would have more impact. We drizzled some caramel syrup on them to get them just right. I also took others' advice and added the third layer before it cooled. I used all the measurements in the recipe - did not double any of the layers as some people did. I agree that the bottom layer was quite thin to spread, but it did bake up fine."
"These were great! My son is allergic to peanuts so I used semi-sweet, butterscotch, and white chocolate chips for the topping and it was really good."
"This sounds delicious! Just what I've been looking for, but I wonder if something can be substituted for the peanut butter? I'm baking this for a group of kids and some of them can't eat peanut butter....anyone have any ideas? Thanks!"
"Wow, sweet and chocolately and good!!! I didn't make this, someone else did and brought it to a party and everyone was enjoying it a little too much. We all loved it. Some of us are on WW so we just had a small piece. Several ask for the recipe. thanks for posting....my husband loved it."
"I, like one of the other members cheated and used boxed chocolate cake mix for the bottom. It turned out really well. I brought a plate of these to work and my co-workers gave me SO many compliments. :) Thanks for the recipe!"
"This was a wonderful treat! I cheated and used boxed milk chocolate cake mix for the bottom layer. It turned out great. I love the flavor of the peanut butter and chocolate topping. Thanks for the great recipe!"
"I thought the bottom layer was going to have the consistency of a brownie, but it was more like a nice delicate cake. I did not have vanilla, so I used some almond extract, it tasted like I added amarettoâ€¦ ;-) Everyone really enjoyed!"
"I've had this recipe from Taste of Home for years. It's great. Although in the recipe I have it says to spread the marshmallows over the cake after they have been baked, this helps to cover the entire cake. Thanks"
"My kids could hardly keep their hands off these. They are easy and taste better as they cool. Thanks for the recipe."
"Absolutely fabulous! I didn't put nuts in mine since I didn't have any, and it was still great. I liked that, despite its rich appearance, it wasn't overly sweet or rich! It is a perfect treat!"
"These are very yummy! It is very hard to eat just one. I did not let the marshmallow cool completely so when I put the peanutbutter chocolate mixture on top I had to just mix in the marshmallows as well........worked out great! My family just loved these!!! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!!"
"These are so good, I could eat the entire pan myself!"
"I followed the recipe to the letter - and it just doesn't taste very good. It is rather bland. I'm sorry - just not something I will make again."
"Scrumptious! This was gobbled up by my kids!! :)"
"Not trying to give this any kind of a lesser review but I had quite a few pit falls with this recipe. Followed the recipe with the exception of the nuts. The bottom layer was tough to spread on a 11X13 pan. 2 cups of marshmallows was not enough to cover it and I had to double the top layer ingrediants as well to cover it. At the end of it all we just weren't that crazy about it. Just too much stuff going on for us. Thanks for posting tho!"
"These are very good.I put the finished product in the fridge to set but found it very hard to get them out of the pan.Instead I just leave them at room temp now and they come out much easier.I don't really like these kinds of dessert cold anyway.Thanks for the great tasting recipe!"
"Oh my...these were YUMMO!! My 9 year old chose and made thse almost all by herself (had help with the oven)I didn't think I'd go for them at all but boy was I wrong these are fab. Great kids party food."
