Top Review by Aunt Fan

These come out great with almost any variety of substitutions! I just made them with butter pecan cake mix and all the other ingredients exactly as written, and I think they were the best ever in the 20 years I've been using this same recipe! I'm going to put red and green morsels in the next batch for Christmas giving.
