"WOW! So rich, moist, delicious, creamy, and NOT overly-sweet! Simply a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Even my husband "WOWed" at it. And he's not a "lover" of sweets. The stout offsets the sweetness. I did not add the caramels on top because: In my haste, two out of the three layers fell apart because I did NOT wait to properly cool them, (it was almost midnight and I was dead tired), so instead, I turned it onto a Trifle Cake. It turned out even better because we did not have to slice it for the guests, they just scooped up cake onto a plate and reveled in the chocolatey deliciousness of it. I will make this again and again. Also, I used the box of triple chocolate fudge cake mix, because that's what I had. "

"Ridiculously easy & Amazingly Delicious! Fun & different. The kids & grown ups loved it both the same. Much better for a hot, Texas summer than the traditional baking of mac 'n cheese. Doubled the recipe, but as other's suggested, I did not use all of the sauce. I had just over 3/4 cup of sauce left over! But I will use it as a topping for baked potatoes. ;) yum! <3"
