Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars
adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything

1 package plain yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 eggs
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla

1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2) Mix cake mix, melted butter, peanut butter, and eggs in a large bowl. Using a spatula press half the cake mixture into a 9X13 pan. Set the other half aside to crumble on the top.
3) Place chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter in a small bowl and melt in the microwave. Heat the mixture for 1 minute at a time, stirring between intervals until the chocolate chips are completely melted. Once melted, add in vanilla.
4) Next, layer the chocolate mixture over the cake layer and crumble the remaining cake mix on top of the chocolate mixture.
5) Bake for 20-25 minutes. For best results, cool completely before cutting into bars and serving.

These bars are super rich so a little goes a long way!
