This might be my new favorite dessert. It was VERY rich and had a creamy texture. I made mine with praline (candied) pecans and it definitely the way to go.

This was an easy recipe to prepare and it was enjoyed by all. Other "Neiman Marcus" recipes posted on this site use different cake mixes and I look forward to trying a different one at a later date. Thanks for posting!
