I found this recipe in an old cookbook and changed a few ingredients to suit my family's taste. They really enjoy this candy. You'll love how fast, fun and simple it is! Get the kids to help you spread the toppings. —Becky Thesman, Enid, Oklahoma

"This was delicious and a very special treat for those that don't like a traditional birthday cake! Eat within 24 hrs (recruit 10 friends at least to help eat this!) or the potato chips start to go stale."
