Very Good! Quick and easy, this is one of those recipes that I had everything on hand. My children loved them. I had to add and additional tablespoon of water because the dough seemed too dry. I was also able to stretch the mixture to fit into a 9x13 pan. I cut them into squares and topped with vanilla ice cream, drizzeled caramel topping and chocolate syrup on top. Easy and Yummy!

I looked forward to a quick easy recipe here, but I was a bit baffled. The dough was very dry so I added 2 T. water. You really had to press to get it to fit the pan. After baking it still looked dry so I sprinkled powdered sugar on it and served it to a bunch of teens. They ate most of it but I was not impressed.

Confused by this recipe. If you mix the cake mix as per the instructions on the box and then add the remaining ingredients you basically get a cake with a chocolate bottom. However, if you do not mix the cake batter and just add the powder to the remaining listed ingredients, it is no where near moist enough to be a batter. I think there may be a mistake in the amounts of certain ingredients listed.

This was terrible. I was highly confused by the recipe and the end result was just as confusing. Will not make again!

I left out the nuts due to a picky eater, & I added an extra egg (had 2 cracked & had to use them! LOL) They came out great - will do again! I also will admit to not quite measuring all liquids, so there may have been a little extra liquid. Still came out fine. :-)

As written, the end result is a crumbly mess. With an added Tbsp of water, it's a sticky clump that you can't even spread into a 9 x 13 pan.

The mix was way too dry. I added 3 extra tablespoons of water. The mix was very sticky and didn't spread well. They don't taste good. Don't make them.
