baking pan, top it with the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk, and the top the whole thing with the rest of the cake mixture, like the picture above. After baking, it will look like this.
Cool the bars completely before cutting into squares. They have a wonderful peanut butter flavor, which is perfect with the chocolate center, of course. Or, you can use peanut butter chips for an all the same flavor bar. So, these bars are delicious, but not what I was hoping for. But my whole family enjoyed them, even if they didn't turn out to be the chewy, gooey bars of our dreams!
from Mr. Food of "oooh it's so good!" fame
1 package (18.25 ounces) yellow cake mix
2 large eggs
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 package, 12 ounces, semi-sweet chocolate chips, or a 10 ounce bag of peanut butter chips
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix the cake mix, eggs, butter and peanut butter together. Press half of the mixture evenly in a 9x13 inch baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes in the oven. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the chocolate chips and drizzle with the sweetened condensed milk. Crumble the remaining peanut butter mixture over the top. Place pan back in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden. Remove to a wire rack and cool completely before cutting into bars. Enjoy! A perfect snack for any occasion!
Note: To make all chocolate peanut butter bars, just use a chocolate cake mix with the chocolate chips.
