    I cheated by using cake mix and it turned out great. Prepare 1 pkg. of yellow or butter recipe cake mix by using 4 eggs, 2/3 cup water, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/2 softened butter or margarine and add the chopped candy bars. Then follow the rest of the recipe. Apologies to the submitter, but I think this variation is just as good and a lot less time-consuming to make!  -  27 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Extraordinarily good with the only downfall being the length of time it takes to make. I suggest playing around with the recipe. I actually made an almond joy cake instead substituting almond joys and almond butter for baby ruths and peanut butter. It was fantastic. I omitted the whipped cream for whipped chocolate frosting, which might be too sweet for some, but it was fine by me. Overall, a good (even if tedious) recipe.  -  21 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Though the end result of this recipe is a very deicious desert, I can't say that it's really worth the time and effort it takes to make it. There are probably recipes out there that are just as scrumptious but take a lot less work.  -  15 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
