Excellent recipe! Make sure to cut the bars while warm it's so much easier.

Tried and everyone loved it at home. Substituted raisins, cashews instead of pecan and added less sugar.

This recipe was easy and came out terrific. The only problem I had was whether to add whipped cream or ice cream to it; the whipping cream won!

I served this topped with some Greek yogurt - the 'tang' of the yogurt offset the 'too sweet' of the cake. Thanks for the great recipe!

A good recipe if you don't want any added fat. It's quite sweet though.
