Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

Oh, my goodness, these are sooooo good. I made them for Dinner Group tonight and simply loved them. They have a rich, creamy, almost pudding like chocolate filling, surrounded by tender peanut butter cake, that is still gooey, and not too peanut-buttery. They were super rich and but, oh, so good. And you can't beat how easy they are to prepare. It only took me 15 minutes to put them together. These were so good, that I had to instantly give 3/4 of the pan away. Or I would have finished them by myself.

Recipe Source: The Girl Who Ate Everything

1 pkg. Yellow Cake Mix
1 stick melted butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 eggs

1 12 oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 8 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tbsp. butter

1. Preheat oven to 325°F, and lightly grease a 9x13 pan.

2. Combine melted butter, peanut butter, and eggs. Mix until combined.

3. Add in cake mix and stir until incorporated. It will be a stiff, almost crumbly mixture. But it should still be moist.

4. Set aside 1 1/2 cups of the crumb mixture and press the reminder into the bottom of the 9x13 pan.

5. In a medium saucepan, melt chocolate, condensed milk and butter over medium heat, and stir until smooth.

6. Spread chocolate mixture over the crumb mixture. (It will be a very thick chocolate layer.) Crumble the reserved crumb mixture over the chocolate.

7. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
