By request, have not tried, but they sound luscious!

Top Review by Divinemom5

These were very good.Tasted like an Almond Joy candy bar.Chewy and moist.The only thing I would change would be to sprinkle an additional cup of chocolate chips on the top,1 cup wasn't enough,I was tearing the cake as I tried to spread it.
