Ratings & Reviews

    I love this recipe - I've been making it for years - it's so versatile. Use chocolate cake with chocolate and peanut butter chips (as the recipe calls) or use yellow cake with white and butterscotch chips (with or without toffee chips), or even strawberry cake mix with white and chocolate chips (without nuts and coconut). YUM!!
