I made this cake for our office Christmas luncheon and everybody loved it. They all wanted the recipe. I thought the directions were a little confusing but I think I figured it out correctly. Thanks for this recipe. It will be added to my permanent file.

I had this cake at a Memorial Day cookout and it was absolutely delicious. Perhaps the Oleo made a difference in the taste. I will use this but will change the Oleo to butter. Butter always makes things better. Thanks for the recipe!

I must admit that I didn't particularly like the crunch/feel of the Rice Krispies in this recipe. When I'm evaluating a dessert recipe, it must rate 5 stars for me to make it again because there are just so many GREAT dessert recipes around. I did photograph the recipe because it LOOKED nice, but again, we didn't think it rated 5 stars.
