      Wow, I've had this recipe on hand for eons, but never made them until today! I made these for work (I was stress-baking, lol). I used a different brownie mix (Betty Crocker Chewy Fudge, if I remember correctly) because that's what I had in the pantry -- I got sucked in by the 10 for $10 sale. Instead of the almonds (nut allergies at work, didn't want to kill anyone with my snacks), I used those swirled caramel/milk chocolate morsels. Oh, and I used fat-free cream cheese because that's what I accidentally bought (I don't typically use fat-free cheese products because they're extremely gummy, but it worked just fine in this instance). Other than that, I made them as written, and they were great! Easy to make, too (always a good thing for bakers who are perpetually 5 minutes late like me). Thanks for posting!

      Count on compliments when serving this as your dessert. Thanks for pointing me to the candy bar section for those chocolate-covered English toffee bars which I had been hunting for Di! Not being all that familiar with candy bars, finding I was looking for Skor bars made the finding easy!The only change I made was using less of the candy bar pieces, (only because I was short on the candy bars)it still made for a lovely topping. I didn't manage to find the Pillsbury Brownie mix but the Fudge Brownie mix worked well for me. I offered a scoop of vanilla ice cream, which made for a perfect dessert. Have added this to my dessert file. Thank you diScharf.
