For the people who love rocky road dessert and peanut butter, I created this new cake recipe. Peanut butter and rocky road are all combined.

Pour yourself a glass of milk because this baby is rich! The frosting is a little thin, but oh so good. It's full of chocolate flavor with a hint of tang from the cream cheese. I love the addition of the peanut butter chips to the cake batter too. The marshmallow, peanut butter filling between the layers is fantastic. This really is a cross between a peanut butter cup and rocky road, two of my favorite desserts. The Test Kitchen
