I was tickled to see this simple recipe at Artsy-Fartsy Mama, but I adapted it with just a few changes.
They turned out wonderfully. I made them to put in the freezer so when I need a plateful of goodies to take to someone for the holidays, I am ready, set to go!
I always stock up on cake mixes when they're on sale. Was shocked when I didn't have a yellow cake mix on hand, so I used chocolate. LOVED these!
You could add coconut, coffee or toffee for other 'flavor bursts'.
