Super easy and a super rich treat! I made these a couple of weeks ago with my 3 year old granddaughter. You truly haven't lived until you cook with a little one. Don't think I've ever seen anyone crack an egg so fast. Couldn't get to her fast enough. When 1st making these, I used a cake mix. Today I didn't have a mix and needed something to send to friends so I tweaked the recipe and came up with this. Not sure if it's not better. Definitely yummy! If you would rather use a cake mix, eliminate the dry ingredients and use a (18.25 oz) cake mix.
