googoo cluster cake

One of my favorite candy bars growing up was a GooGoo Cluster. All that caramel chocolate and nuts always tasted amazing. The cake is a weight watcher cake but this is by no means a diet cake. I just love the dense texture and richness of this cake so I am using the recipe. This will be a great potluck cake that everyone will love. A rich dessert that will have everyone licking there fork. If you add the marshmallows before the cake is almost done they will sink to the bottom so be sure to wait to add them just before the cake is almost done. You will be glad you did.
