I tried this and it was so good!!!! I substituted regular pancake syrup for the KARO as I do in all recipes that call for KARO and my family and coworkers went nuts. I will definately make this again and again. Super simple and no fail. GREAT RECIPE. I could eat the whole pan by myself. It is better the next day after it sets and all of the flavors mix and mingle.

Kind of reminds me of dump cake. It was a little too sweet for me.

I have made this recipe using both yellow and a chocolate cake mixes. The yellow make a prettier presentation, showing the layers. The chocolate wasn't as pretty, but it tasted good. I didn't have any problem cutting and serving these bars.
