I think it was good for my kids, I used a yellow cake mix with the pudding in it. So I doubled it, I used 3 eggs, cooked it longer and added some oil to the butter to measure 1 cup. It turn out good. I'll use the jiffy yellow cake mix next time, to see how that does. The marshmallow trick turned out great! 1124
Very easy & quick to make. I took this to a Christmas party & everyone loved it. I used chocolate chips instead of M&Ms.
Looks very Christmassy. The taste was great. A little tricky to cut and the marshmallows make it sticky, gooey, and a little too chewy.
I served this at a holiday party. No one really ate these. And the few who did said that it was way too sugary. Maybe these would be better for a children's holiday party instead. Kids tend to like the real sugary stuff.
I made this for a church bake sale, and had a couple that the edge was a little too browned, so my family got to taste test. I substituted chocolate-caramel swirl chips for the M&M's and did not use peanuts and it was a hit! Easy to make, although I did add a tiny bit more water to the cake mix, because it was so dry that it wasn't sticking together. Overall easy to make and tastes great! I will bake this again for Christmas party.
I've made this recipe for many different occations. There usually aren't any left. These are delicious, fast and easy!
This recipe was so nice and easy. The cookies turned out great. It hardly took anytime to prepare and make. So if you are looking for something festive and last minute, I would highly recommend these. Thanks so much for sharing. They were yummy!!!
I made this for a holiday treat party and thought it was the easiest recipe I ever used. However, when I went to cut the "bars" from the pan, the entire cake crumbled! I followed the directions exactly as stated, but the cake box called for water, 3 eggs and oil. I believe because I didn't follow the cake's instructions, this didn't turn out as planned. You should directl people (who don't bake) to follow the cake boxes directions, not yours. I don't know how everyone else made this come out like a cookie. Maybe I should have used the brownie mix as the other person just suggested...but that's only if you love chocolate cake. Oh well :o(
This turned out great! I followed the recipe exactly. Next time I'll use a brownie mix for the bottom. My husband loves it extra fudgy!
very quick & easy!!everyone loved them, be sure & put the ingredients in the order listed for best results. Renee
