    I added a cup of milk chocolate chips to the batter and reduced the chips on top by half. It was easy, quick to prepare, and my family loves it. I'll be taking it to church functions!  -  10 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    The cake turned out really moist. I only used half a cup of chocolate chips on top. Hubby took the rest to work, they were all happy to find it doesn't taste as rich as it looks, which is a good thing. It had just the right amount of sweetness and peanuty taste for us.  -  15 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
