Peanut Butter Fudge Bars

Another 'grandma' recipe that almost every cook or baker over the age of 40 knows... but perhaps has been lost among those of us in our thirties and younger.


1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup (6 ounce) semisweet chocolate chips
1 tub coconut pecan frosting
1 tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13x9" baking pan. In a bowl, combine cake mix, peanut butter, egg and oil. Press two-thirds of the mixture into prepared baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.

In a heavy saucepan, heat the milk, chocolate chips, frosting and butter over low heat; stir until blended. Pour over crust. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Cut into bars.Print Friendly and PDF
