Recipe by Mamas Kitchen Hope

My dear friend Lisa made this one day and brought it to work to share. I BEGGED and pleaded her for the recipe because it was so yummy and delish! I was shocked at just how simple it is when she emailed it to me. She got it somewhere on the web- she thought it was cdkitchen. Hope you enjoy it!

FANTASTIC - Super easy!!! I love the butter cake mix. This is so creamy, so scrumptious and my favorite... SO EASY. I made two sheets for a potluck picnic one with Cherry and one with Blueberry - they were the first desserts to disappear! Thanks Mama for another incredible recipe!
