I made this as per directions...couldn't get it out of the pan!!! I would suggest making a cookie crust or a graham cracker crust as the cake mix gets hard as a rock!

We renamed this as "heaven". It is so delicious. I make it frequently. When I made it for my husband's office, he got so many requests for the recipe! They LOVED it too.

I've made this many times & always get rave reviews. I think it tastes like an Oreo cookie, but so wonderfully creamy.

The crust that was made with cake it wassalty. My family didn't care for. Not forsure why it was salty. Any ideal?
