Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

Review by Lyndee:

1 package plain yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 eggs
1 (12 oz) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine cake mix, melted butter, peanut butter, and eggs in a large bowl using a mixer or spoon. 

Press this into a 9X13 pan reserving 1 1/2 cup of the mixture to crumble on top.

In a small pot, melt chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Spread chocolate mixture over the mixture pressed in the pan and then crumble the 1 1/2 cups of reserved cake mixture on top evenly.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars or they will crumble.

I tried the cake mix batter before I put the bowl in the sink and it was amazing! I could’ve ate just that plain.  These bars are pretty dang good cooked too.  They were easy and quick to make and I had all the ingredients at home in the cupboards except for the condensed milk. I realized after I made them, my can said evaporated milk which probably which I’m hoping is the same thing as sweetened condensed but I don’t know.  Oops.  They still taste really good though. Would be great for a potluck or to share at the office like I am today.
