Peanut Butter Chocolate Squares

Hey kids! As you could tell from my absence yesterday I am in Indiana this week! Sheree is talking about a yummy recipe that I can not wait to try!!!!

Hey everyone! My name is Sheree, and I blog over at The Hartungs. One of my hobbies is baking, and today I'm sharing one of my favorite recipes. My husband does not have a sweet tooth, and most of my baking is lost on him - except for this recipe! For whatever reason, he loves these peanut butter chocolate squares. I hope that you enjoy this dessert as much as we do!

So let's get started, shall we?

STEP 1: Gather your ingredients:
  • 1 package plain white cake mix
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 8 tablespoons margarine, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
STEP 2: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Using a hand mixer, beat together the cake mix, peanut butter, eggs, and melted butter. 

STEP 3: The mixture will be thick. Line a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper. Reserve about 1 cup for the topping, and spread the remaining of the peanut butter mixture into the pan with your hands. Don't be afraid to get a little dirty!

STEP 4: In a medium saucepan, melt together the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and margarine on low-medium heat.

STEP 5: Once the mixture has melted completely, remove from heat. Add vanilla and combine.

STEP 6: Spread the chocolate mixture evening over the peanut butter mixture.

STEP 7: Crumble the remainder of the peanut butter mixture evenly over the chocolate layer. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the top layer is a light golden brown. 

STEP 8: Let the dessert cool for approximately 30 minutes.

STEP 9: Once cool, remove the dessert from the dish, and cut into small squares. And then....
