I did not add the peanuts and used mini chocolate chips, which I put on AFTER I spread the peanut butter over the cake mix layer. It was a lot easier to handle that way. I also added a layer of marshmallows to the chocolate chip layer before topping with the remaining cake mix layer. It was a little hard to cut, but good.

This recipe was really not a joy to make. Trying to spread the peanut butter on top of the chocolate chips and nuts was a pain. Then layering the rest of the cake batter sounded easier than it actually was. I may, in the distant future try it again however it would not be on the top of my list.

Where to begin? As with most recipes Ive ran into with Kraft, the pan size always seems to big...like there is not enough product to fill the pan. The peanut butter was sooo hard to layer on, this dish needs cooled first otherwise it just smears the bottom and the peanut butter wont spread. I recommend using an 8x8 pan. I would leave out the peanuts too. Didn't taste good in it. Leave it in the fridge for more than an hour. I left it in for 3 hours and it still wouldn't cut right. It was like a gooey mess you have to eat with a spoon.

It is okay, not great because it doesn't taste sweet but very dull. It also dries that came from peanut butter which it is little bit hard to to shallow. I wouldn't make it again next time.

I do agree that this was a difficult recipe that I was taking to friends and wish I'd done a test run of this recipe first. But the end result, although not much to look at, was DELICIOUS. I substituted Reese's Peanut Butter Chips for the peanuts. Next time I'd probably make the first layer thinner to save some for the top layer. I'd also roll out the top layer and then attempt to place it on top of the peanut butter layer. All around crowd pleasing recipe that everyone found tasty!

As most people have said so far, this recipe is not as easy as it looks. The chocolate cake mixture is very thick and difficult to spread, especially the 2nd layer of it. The bars were hard to cut after refrigerating overnight. Also, I thought they were way too sweet. If you like peanut butter and chocolate, try the "No Oven Peanut Butter Squares." They taste just like peanut butter cups!

Very rich! I could only eat a small piece at a time. Looked easy to make but found it a bit difficult. I agree with the other comments - the 1st layer needs to be cooled before trying to spread the PB over it. And I think it would help if the PB was warm so it would spread easier. By the time I got to the 3rd layer, I was just smooshing it around in dollops instead of "spreading" it. The bottom layer wasn't quite done in 10 min and even after the add'l 15 min it was still gooey - some of my testers liked that gooey-ness and some didn't. Probably won't make this again.

I thought this recipe was a bit bitter. I made vanilla frosting for it to help sweeten it up a bit. Good idea of melting the peanut butter before trying to spread it. I will try to make it again but with adding 10x sugar to the peanut butter and using vanilla pudding instead of chocolate amd melting the choclate to drizzle over the top.

I only eat sweets once a week and this was my weekly treat. What a HUGE disappointment. It looked just like the picture but didn't have much good flavor. My husband thought the exact same thing. I ended up throwing them away. The ingredients just don't work that well together.

I was not disappointed. They do taste great; however, mine did not look like the picture. It was hard to spread the 2nd and 3rd layers. Everything somewhat melted together. I know they were gone at work in less than 1 hour!!
