"Tasty and easy! I used 1/2 of a regular size cake mix. The second time I went to make these, I changed the recipe somewhat. I used an 18-1/4 cherry chip cake mix, 1/2 cup butter melted, 1 egg, beaten, 1 cup coconut and 1/4 t. almond extract. This was good too!"

"First of all, what kind of cake mix comes in a 9 ounce size? My box was an 18.25 so I doubled all of the rest of the ingredients. I did not chill the dough--just added the toffee bits (I omitted the pecans) and mixed all together. Came out great! Very easy once I figured out the ingredients ratio!

Thanks for sharing!"
