These Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars have layers of buttery cake mix and a coconut chocolate creamy filling.

Peanut Butter, chocolate, cake mix…how could this not be heaven. I have been making these for a couple years ever since I had them at my friend’s chocolate party. This are very, very rich. For me to say that is saying a lot. They are perfect for a PMS moment. Not that I have had any of those for 5 months. They are probably 10,845 Weight Watcher points! Decadent.

Ingredients

  • 1 18.25 package plain yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter melted

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 12 oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Combine cake mix, melted butter, peanut butter, and eggs in a large bowl using a mixer or spoon. Press the cake mixture into a 9X13 pan reserving 1 1/2 cup of the mixture to crumble on top.
  3. In a small pot, melt chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and coconut.
  4. Spread chocolate mixture over the mixture pressed in the pan and then crumble the 1 1/2 cups of reserved cake mixture on top evenly.
