The recipe taste looks and smells great. The only think I had a problem with was the directions they were a little bit confusing.

Very good! I did make a few changes-I made it in 2 8x8 pans and froze one without the toppings on it, on the one I finished I used regular marshmellows(didn't have mini) and instead of M&M pieces, I used some Skor peices that I had in the cupboard. It was very simple to make and very good! Thanks for posting undertkr!
