Rated 2 out of 5 by from I made this for a holiday treat party and thought it was the easiest recipe I ever used. 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(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fast easy to make co workers love it. fast easy to make co workers love it. I did l layer of marshmallows to melt first then take back out of oven then so the final topping would look picture perfect. So with adding more marshmallows and the final candies and peanuts. last time in oven watch only need a couple of minutes in the oven you don't want the marshmallows to melt to much the last time with all the candies. I also use the butter flavor Criso stick for baking add some other flavor to the cake mix then there is no need to wait for the butter to get roon temp. if you use it. It is something you can just have in your cabniet and all the item don't go bad and if you need something at the last minute you have it all on hand. This is one to try.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hi - and Happy Holidays! Hi - and Happy Holidays! The recipe is easy to prepare, and it looks so festive! They're also very good tasting. I also found that the topping didn't stick, but perhaps that could be fixed by dipping the marshmallows in water for 2 seconds - and then sprinkling on top of the baked cookie crust. They might then stick and get the candies to stick as well. I haven't tried that yet, but I will. (I wouldn't advise dipping the candies because the colors would run.) Thanks.

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 used strawberry cake mix for this recipe, along with flaked coconut topping, m & m's, and white chocolate chips for a valentine church social. Although the bars were devoured quite quickly I would recommend using chocolate, yellow or white cake mix, and bake the cake mix for as little time as possible to keep the bottom layer moist. Otherwise a very simple recipe with nice results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are pretty good. These are pretty good. They are really easy to make & will be good to do when you are in a hurry. I plan to make them again to send to my daughter's classroom Christmas party. Kids seem to like them well & these give a variety to the same old chocolate chip or sugar cookies. I "toasted" the marshmallows but turning the oven to low broil after adding the marshmellows & candies.

They were very sweet. I saw the comments about letting the marshmallows melt so the topping didn't come off. I let mine melt a little too much because the edges hard. So I just got the edges off. Otherwise a good easy recipe that kids will enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was so easy and everyone loved it, especially a kid I used to babysit....whose 18 now. This recipe was so easy and everyone loved it, especially a kid I used to babysit....whose 18 now. I made this for a bake sale in April. We had another bake sale in June but I didn't make it and the kid was upset because I didn't make it. We are having another bake sale coming up and I told him I would make it again.....he's buying the whole pan!
