      Very rich! I used yellow cake mix. I would say it's too sweet, but it's more of a portion control issue. Almost Tres Leches like in taste/texture. Yummy.

      This is one of my husband's favorite desserts, and asks me to make it every chance I can -- we call it "Great Cake" because it truly is GREAT! :) I usually do Homemade Yellow Cake and Variations instead of the chocolate cake and it's still just as rich and delicious. I also use just two candy bars and find that's plenty for the top.
