    Hotmitts Houlihan's Note:

    From a cake mix! Easy and impressive! This version of the recipe from Taste Of Homes' Cake Mix Creations, has slightly more specific instructions and added ingredients than another recipe posted here. I'm sure they taste just the same, but I wanted to get this tried and true recipe in for my own records. I've used this for HALLOWEEN and CHRISTMAS with different food colorings for either the crust or the top batter or both, and have left plain for everyday. Bonus: They freeze very well. I've also found that they need to be cut smaller than your average bar size as they're very rich.(and I love chocolate!)

      Just ok - VERY sweet - but not outstanding. The orange color was not very pronounced after baking- probably my fault - so use a LOT of food coloring.

      What a neat recipe! It's already a favorite one since I've made it three times! These taste great, like an "elevated brownie" with a cookie base. I rolled out my dough for the top (in a ziplock freezer bag) and placed it on top, covering the entire top. It reminded me of fondant. Thanks Hotmitts, for a recipe I will make often. Roxygirl
