    I've made this numerous times! It's my recipe for my home based business with a few secret ingredients that I added! However I don't add any chips, nuts only. Super moist and delicious!

    Made this several times, comes out great! Nice and moist. I make it without the PB or chocolate chips a few times and just add a few more walnuts, delish!
