    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 ofthe pan as is. Super easy to make and everyone loves it. Thanks for sharing therecipe, I , too still call it " The Girdlebuster" and it's fun to share the original name.

    This was unbelivable, amazing and easy. I made this for a lunch date and forbid the kids to touch it, we wanted it ALL for ourselves!

    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.
