"I made this years ago and still enjoy it today. How can you go wrong with Heath bars?

You don't even have to have the fudge topping, it is really delicious straight out of
the pan as is. Super easy to make and everyone loves it. Thanks for sharing the
recipe, I , too still call it " The Girdlebuster" and it's fun to share the original name."

"THIS dessert IS SINFULLY DELICIOUS. I MADE IT FOR COMPANY & THEY WENT WILD. I DO LIKE THE ORIGINAL NAME OF "THE GIRDLEBUSTER". TODAY WE COULD CALL IT A SPANX BUSTER."
