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. We 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 our favorite desserts.
