  • Just put another batch in the oven. Used golden butter cake and butterscotch pudding this time. Have made it at least six times now. and change out the mix and pudding flavors each time. They always come out awesome, and the new family favorite. Recommended add-ins: only a handful of chocolate chips on top instead of the suggested amount, nuts and Heath bar chips. Naked blondies are also great!

  • I have Pillsbury cake mix with pudding already in the mix. Do I still need to add the package of pudding?

  • made this delicious dessert and it was awesome! Only took 15 mins in my oven. Can’t wait to try it again and try it with the cheesecake pudding!

  • I think I’m going to be making these using lemon cake mix, cheesecake pudding, white chocolate chips, and fresh blueberries. Omg yummmmmmmmmm
