Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

For my niece’s wedding reception, I made some tried and true bar recipes.  But I also tried this new one, which uses a cake mix and other ingredients that I had on hand.  Plus peanut butter and chocolate combined….a person can’t go wrong!

Oven: 325   Bake Time:  20-25 Min   Yield: 9X13  pan


  • 1 (18.25) yellow cake mix
  • ½ c butter, melted
  • 1 c creamy peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (12 oz) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 t vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 325
  • Combine cake mix, melted butter, peanut butter and eggs.
  • Press into 9×13 pan, reserving 1 ½ c of the mixture to crumble on top.
  • In small pot, melt chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla
  • Spread chocolate mixture over the cake mixture pressed in the pan.
  • Crumble the 1 ½ c reserved cake mixture on top.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
