EXCELLENT! Made exactly as written, except for using butterscotch chips in place of regular chocolate chips, per hubby's request. So moist and flavorful...loved the addition of the vanilla pudding mix. Buttery, yummy goodness...a defininte keeper! Thanks for sharing. :)
Sorry, but i really count on reviews when i look at recipes here and they're usually right on. This recipe was a real flop for me, though i followed the directions carefully. The bars were so gooey and just not cooked through. I actually put them back in the oven for 15 mins. and they were still gooey!
These were really good. I used butterscotch pudding mix because it's what I had on hand. Also, I sprinkled butterscotch chips on top. You could make a lot of variations based on what you have in your pantry. Cinnamon chips with raisins and pecans would be good or chocolate and peanut butter.
Just made these exactly as stated and they are YUMMY! Easy too! Try them!
These are very tasty! I also messed up a little and accidently used a small box of vanilla pudding instead of the larger 3.25oz box. And although they came out a bit dry, they were still very good! I added 1 cup of milk chocolate chips and 1 cup of raisins. Will definitely make these again. I can't wait to try them with chocolate pudding! Thank you, cicada77!
Wow, did these bake up beautifully! I THOUGHT I was putting vanilla pudding mix in...smelled odd, pulled the box out of the trash....banana creme. lol. They're still phenomenal!! These will be a repeat(with vanilla next time)!!
The first time I made this recipe I was just looking for an easy bar cookie with ingredients I had on hand. This is what I discovered. This recipe is outstanding on its own but it is so versatile it has to stay in the recipe box. First time, I saw I had pumpkin spice pudding in my pantry so I traded that out for the vanilla pudding. 2 cups of raisins instead of chocolate chips and a TBS Pumpkin pie spice. The next time I had butterscotch pudding and used 2 cups of butterscotch chips. Today I am making them again. I am not sure what changes I have in store, but even if I don't change it all it will be wonderful. Thank you Cicada77 for sharing such a great recipe.
I messed up a little - but it still worked out great! I used instant pudding by mistake, but it was too late so I went with it! I used 2 boxes since they were 1oz or so each, but I did stick with vanilla. I did have to cook it about 20 more mins than written, fyi.4
The end result not over-powering sweet, the choc chips added to it nicely. I liked it more the more I ate.The more I ate, the more I liked them :)
