The recipe is unclear about when and how you deal with the cream cheese filling: do you cook it after you fill the cake up with it or put in the fridge to set? There seems to be a step missing. It looks cooked in the photo??? Read More

The recipe is truly confusing. Step 2 says filling to follow then Step 5 tells you how to mix it. No mention of cookies or the chips. Someone needs to reconfigure this recipe then resubmit Read More

Hmm. Not a fan. The cream cheese part being on the top got overdone before the middle of the cake with done. The flavors were good though. I think perhaps a person should make a "tunnel" in the middle of the cake and put the cream cheese there. Read More

Excellent. Followed the recipe and directions as listed and it turned out perfect. Step 5 the directions for the cream cheese filling should be moved up to step 2 but it was obvious. The cake is heavy and dense and super tasty. It is soft and moist and very chocolatey. Great for show and flavor. Read More
