This is the first time making these bars but I am having trouble with the recipe. It says to use 1 package of yellow cake mix. Now am I supposed to actually make the yellow cake mix according to the box/package that it comes in and then start following the Rolo recipe or only use the yellow cake mix powder itself and then start adding the nuts butter and milk etc.?? If anyone could give a hand it would be greatly appreciated! Good Day and thanks! Read More

I too was confused exactly how to make this recipe. I did not mix the cake mix with anything but the evaporated milk & melted butter. I changed it some too. I did not add the nuts and used a butter pecan cake mix instead of yellow (it was what I had on hand) (((next time I might try chocolate)). I also did not cook the first layer at all. I just layed it all and cooked it about 25 minutes total. It turned out fine. Read More

I have not made these myself. My sis-in-law mentioned them to me and said they are DELICIOUS!!! I will be making them soon. Anyway I wanted to post so that anyone making this recipe will not be confused. You do NOT make the cake per the box. You just add the butter and evap milk. Follow the recipe from there. Hope this helps! Read More

These were very easy to make and tasty too! My family doesnt like nuts so I left them out. The end result was a chewy chocolate and caramel bar with a bit of a crunch. Yummy! Read More
