MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 19, 2012

"These are awesome! Have made them twice now and they taste like an Almond Joy. Recipe didn't make quite as many as promised and the "18-1/4 oz." cake mix threw me. I used Duncan Hines--16.5 oz. and noticed Betty Crocker is now 15.25 oz. They still turned out fine but needed to cook several minutes longer. These would make a great wedding cookie."
