Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

A new school year begins and I’m gearing up for the bake sales! I’ve been testing out a few new recipes to go beyond the usual cupcake and brownie route. These were easy to throw together and are very rich – so cut smallish squares. What are you waiting for? Get baking!

  • 1 – 18.25 ounce box yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 – 12 ounce package of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 – 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 325º.

2. Combine cake mix, 1/2 cup melted butter, peanut butter, and eggs in a bowl with an electric mixer. Press into a 9 x 13 pan – reserving 1 1/2 cups of the mix to crumble on top.

3. In a small pot melt the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and 2 tablespoons butter. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.

4. Spread the chocolate mixture over the dough with a spatula and crumble the reserved cake mixture on top.

5. Bake for 25 minutes, let cool, and cut into bars.
