MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 23, 2016

"So Easy and so delicious! I made these for a meeting which ended up being cancelled. So I took them to "work" where I volunteer. Gone in no time! I made them a couuple of weeks later using a Devil's Food Cake Mix, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and Hershey's Cinnamon Chips with the cashews. WOW! just as good, but very rich. I may try with a carrot cake or spice cake mix next time. Everyone loves them because the crust doesn't fall apart like the graham cracker crust does on the "Clean Your Pantry Bars"."
