Six simple ingredients turn a cake mix into oh-so-rich, oh-so-easy peanut butter bars. You can substitute your favorite morsels for the peanut butter morsels. You can also substitute creamy peanut butter for crunchy.
1 (16.5-ounce) package yellow cake mix
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup peanut butter morsels
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 350°. Combine first 4 ingredients; stir batter by hand, mixing well. Press half of peanut butter mixture onto bottom of an ungreased 9" x 13" pan.
Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with peanut butter morsels, and drizzle with condensed milk. Sprinkle with remaining peanut butter mixture.
Bake 30 more minutes. Cool completely, and cut into bars.
I followed the recipe as given. I agree the sprinkle the remaining instruction was confusing. I used a 9x9 pan and they were moist. My husband and liked them, not loved them. I am not sure I would make them again.
These were "okay." I substituted chocolate chips for the peanut butter morsels because I had them on hand; otherwise I followed the recipe. It said to "sprinkle" on the remaining peanut butter mixture -- I'm still scratching my head wondering how to "sprinkle" something that's the texture of wet mud. Anyway, I spooned it on in blobs. The end result looked good,and the texture was fine, but I wasn't wild about the taste. I'm not sure how to describe it except that it tasted to me like cake mix. Which is what it was, after all. I gave it three stars, but I wouldn't make it again.
CAPITAL Y-U-M! I made them with one change - I used chocolate chips rather than peanut butter chips, as that's alls I had in the pantry. They were great hot, but even better after a day in the refrigerator. Couldn't be easier to make, and really easy to eat!
