    Very Yummy!

    Carla Love from Novato, CA

    Very quick and easy to make. Very flavorful. This is a keeper and will become part of the monthly rotation. I had some leftover Stovetop Stuffing, so I also stuffed it into the pork chop - Wow, very yummy combo.

    very tasty. i would probably add more herbs than is suggested to completely cover 2 chops. but other than that, it was very good, a keeper

    More More Please

    JENN from Indianapolis, IN

    Everyone in my family loved this recipe. My husband even asked me to make it again twice in one week. It's really easy too. I can get it prepared and on the table after work in a pretty short period of time. Excellent. My one year old son even enjoyed it asking for "more, more" after each bite.

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy!

    Kelly from Seattle, WA

    I ended up using my own homemade pesto, rather than the bought kind recommended, but other than that, changed very little. Chops were moist and very yummy. Served with a side of pasta or rice, this is a great quick meal for two!

      I have been making this recipe for quite awhile. Try this next time; use a German chocolate cake mix and the flavor will be wonderful! Also, since I am allergic to walnuts I use chopped peanuts and the saltiness gives the recipe a little added something. You won't be sorry you tried these!

      Wow, it works!

      A Wiener from SPRING VALLEY, NY

      I didn't think that using a recipe with cake mix would really work, or at least not turn out so great. But I was pleasantly surprised at this one. The only thing is that my boys were not fond of the caramel, I'll have to change it up a bit & see what I can substitute that would work & still taste great next time.

      Good but not my favorite

      Betsy Melton from Cabot, PA

      Don't get me wrong these brownies are good with their gooey caramel goodness. They are easy to make and my husband loved them; but thet don't top my mother-in-laws marshmallow brownies. I guess it's a matter of taste- caramel vs. marshmallow!

      Easier way to make brownies
