Hazelnut Cake Squares

“When one of my daughters is asked to bring a dish to a church function, a birthday party or any special occasion, they ask me for this recipe. It is so easy to prepare because it starts with a cake mix. It doesn’t need icing, so it is great for bake sales, too.” —Brenda Melancon, McComb, Mississippi
