Dear Opal, This recipe is another use for chocolate cake mix. It sounds so delicious! I am driven to go to the grocery store and buy a series of cake mixes to try out all the recipes listed on JAP for a series of Almond Joy Cakes. Each sounds so good. I am torn between which recipe I like the most. I will bake several, and garner the votes from my family and friends. I will have to post my findings after I complete my comparisons. Thanks for the challenge. It is fun letting the family vote on a favorite version of a new recipe. LOL. :-)

I am not sure Jan. I have never used the creme. You know the marshmallows melt anyway. If you try it let me know how it turns out. SO may things can be substitued in recipes so I don't see why it wouldn't work.
