"I was craving butterscotch and these sounded so delicious....and they were! However, we found them a little too sweet, which we blamed on the butterscotch chips. If I were to make them again, I'd leave the chips off. The pudding added plenty of butterscotch flavor."

"I had a pineapple cake mix and I combined it with pistachio pudding mix instead of the yellow cake mix and instant butterscotch pudding mix. I did add 1 tsp. vanilla extract to the cream cheese filling and I DID purposely grease and flour my baking pan! This way, I could make sure that the bars were easily removed from the pan. What I'd done was use about 2 cups of individual heath bars (miniature) and crushed them in my food processor. I then measured out what was needed for the filling and the topping. I used 1/2 cup of white baking chips and I'd baked the remaining amount of crushed toffee bars and the 1/2 cup amount of vanilla baking chips 5 minutes. I think this recipe is very versatile in that various cake mixes could be used with the appropriate flavor of instant pudding and the flavor of the baking chips as well! This recipe is really great! Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein"

"Wonderful, rich flavor that is easy to bake and liked by all! It doesn't matter to me whether or not it's got a mix as an ingredient as long as the end result is a great tasting dessert that is enjoyed by all. I just love baking."
