    These bars are amazing! I've been making this recipe for a long time, and it's become one of my "go to" recipes when I need a speedy dessert. Not only are they easy to make, but everyone thinks they're delicious!

    Made this using a Pillsbury seasonal Pink Lemonade cake mix. Perfect summer time treat! Easy to make, cut nice and everyone loved. I did however spray my baking dish with non-stick spray. Removed from the pan very easily. Great recipe!
