WOW these are really good! And easy to make. I took them to a pot luck and was asked for the recipe by several people. Made exactly as directed, except it took mine a little longer to get golden brown.
I made these for our Super Bowl party today. I had to sneak a piece and it was delicious! Love that these come from a box cake mix. They really couldn't be easier. After cooling, I sprinkled them with some powdered sugar. They look awesome! Thanks for the great recipe!
YUM!!! These were delicious (rich!) and really easy to make. Oh, and I didn't (couldn't) wait 2 hours. Only 1.
