Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Every once in a while, I just want to make a yummy dessert. On a cold, windy day I didn't feel like packing the kids in the car to pick up ingredients for many of my desserts. So I looked through all of my pinterest desserts and scoured my cabinets...finally a tempting dessert that I had the ingredients to. Plus, I got to use the condensed milk I buy on sale each year and never use-score for emptying out the pantry. My daughter said they were amazing and asked if I'd make them for her birthday party. The trick is to share these with people because they are delicious and it is hard to stop at one!

  • yellow cake mix (ok, I cheated and used leftover Christmas funfetti cake mix minus the candy bits)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can sweet condensed milk
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 t vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine cake mix, melted butter, peanut butter, and eggs in mixer.
  3. Press into a sprayed 9 x 13 pan; reserve 1 1/2 cups of cake mixture for topping.
  4. In a small saucepan, melt chips, butter, and sweet condensed milk. Once melted, remove from heat. Add vanilla.
  5. Spread in pan.
  6. Crumble remaining cake mixture on top.
  7. Bake 25-30 minutes.
  8. Cool and cut.
Difficulty: Medium
Time:15 minutes prep; 30 minutes baking
