1 (18.25 ounce) package
chocolate cake mix
sweetened flaked coconut
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
I don't know that these tasted anything like the Caramel de Lite Bars (at least we did not think they did), but they are good and extremely easy to make. Be warned that they are very sweet and a small piece goes along way. I only put coconut on one half so that the coconut haters in my family could have desert too. If you cut these to soon you will need to eat it with a spoon. They firm up nicely once they have cooled completely.
These were very good! Although I did not think they tasted like the caramel delight bars that I am used to having, they were yummy and gooey, 2 things I love! They were harder to cut and get out of the pan, which was probably the marshmallows, and i added extra coconut, but will be making again and again!
I thought that these were really good in flavor. You really do need to wait until they cool completely (like a couple of hours) before you try to cut them or they will fall apart. The one problem that I did have was that they seemed to be too much for the size of the pan. When they were cooking it all boiled over and made a gigantic, burned marshmallow mess in the oven. I might try to make them in a 9x13 next time. All in all the flavor is good and I do think tastes like a Caramel de Lite Bar
These were SOOOOOOO good! I love sweets and these were even rich for me. They are just like what we always called magic cookie bars except with a chocolate crust instead of graham cracker crust. I actually think it's much better and easier with the chocolate cake mix. I would've easily given these five stars but I wasn't a big fan of the marshmallow on it. I didn't like the gummy texture they got and I think it would've been better without it. Cannot wait to make these again!
These were so super rich! I'm a sweet lover and could only handle a small bar. Make sure you have plenty of milk when serving these. I also want to stress that you have to make sure that these bars are cool before you cut them. Otherwise, you get a soupy mess which was still yummy, but presentation was lost. They looked so good and I got impatient.
Ummmm..... YUM! Think I just ate 1 too many, though!
Very easy to make & whole family enjoyed them!
Very tasty bars...I don't think they tasted anything like the Girl Scout bars. Quick and easy however, stretching the cake mixture to 10x15 was really stretching it to thin, would have been better in a 8x10. As baked in a 10x15 jelly roll, the bar it self didn't hold very well and didn't get holdable pieces without falling apart and the condensed milk was stretched as well not being able to coat everything evenly for the size it was asked to use. I've made bars like this before and the last recipes I've made required an 8x10 pan. I will make these again but adjust to a smaller vessel. TY.
