I am rating this recipe without making it, and the reason why is a bit odd. Back in the 1970s my grandmother copied this recipe down while listening to the daily cooking show on her favorite radio station. She loved Heath candy bars, but they were difficult for her to enjoy with her dentures. She listened to "Joyce," the program host give this recipe and thought she might be able to enjoy Heath candy bars once again. There are two differences between this recipe the old one. When Gran copied it down, pudding in the mix was not common, so it just said yellow cake mix. And, there were no bagged brickle bit available so she had to crush enough Heath candy bars to make 1 1/2 cups. These became a lunch time favorite with my grandfather, and there was massive pouting to happen if my sisters I were at their home brickle bars were off limits because they were Grand's lunch box. Everyone in the family has a copy of that "original" recipe in gran's handwriting. Forty-plus years later it is still a lunch time favorite!

Could you use a german chocolate cake mix?

Yes, you can absolutely use German chocolate cake mix. Enjoy!

I just made these and as Mr. Food says: OH SO GOOD!!! easy to make also.

Did you leave them in for longer than 25 min? I just made them and they seem a little too gooey. Is there some way to test for doneness?

Hello! You can try cooking your Brickle Bars for 5-8 minutes longer, or until center is formed (by testing with a toothpick). Enjoy!

They are also called English toffie chips made by Heath and found by the chocolate chips in your grocery store

Where do you get almond brickle chips/

That would be crushed Heath bars, you find them with chocolate chips. Mr. Food can't name the brand because of legal issues.
