Ratings & Reviews

    I made this cake for a family Christmas party. There wasn't any left to take home. I would recommend cutting smaller pieces since it is a rich cake. I have made this cake twice and I like using dark chocolate over the semi-sweet. The dark chocolate gives the layers better contrast for balance. The semi-sweet layer was drowned out by the peanut butter layer. Other than that, making the drizzle is a pain if you're in a hurry to get somewhere with it.
    This recipe got very good reviews from my guests but I thought it was just OK. It is too rich and heavy for my taste. I probably won't make this again.
