Chocolate Peanut-Butter Bars

Once again, I have a cake mix recipe for you. It’s almost embarassing how much I love cake mixes. Especially since I can’t remember the last time I baked an actual cake using a cake mix…

Start by greasing a 9″square pan. I used a 7×11″ pan with the same results. If you want to make the recipe go further, use a 9×13″ pan. The bars will be a bit thinner, but it will still work just fine.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. I always get frustrated when that’s the first step in a recipe, especially when the recipe takes half an hour to put together. Then you have a hot oven sitting there for 25 minutes while you get everything together. This recipe is so quick, it really will be ready to go in once your oven is hot!!


  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 C vegetable oil
  • 3/4 C peanut butter (crunchy or smooth is fine)

Mix in:

  • 2 C chocolate chips (I always use jumbo bitter-sweet chips, but use whatever you have)

Press the dough into the pan and bake for 15-20 minutes. The bars will still be soft like a just-baked cookie, but they’ll set a bit as they cool.
