One of my closest friends is moving to Minnesota next week (sad face) to start an awesome grad school program (happy face), so obviously I’m throwing a going away party to send her off.
I keep typing Michigan instead of Minnesota. It’s one of those M states. But not Maine. Or Maryland.
I adore playing hostess and have been trying out lots of Pinterest recipes this summer for all my get togethers, and this weekend is no exception. I stumbled across this recipe by The Girl Who Ate Everything and immediately knew I had to make it! She got this recipe from a friend who I have credited below.
I tried a tiny piece and they are AMAZING. I can’t wait to wow everyone Saturday night!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Awesome Bars
by Greta White
1 (18.25) package plain yellow cake mix (cake mix is now sold in 15.25oz packages, so I bought two boxes and used one whole one plus 1/2 cup of the second one. You can also do crazy math to reduce this recipe for one box of cake mix, but I was way too lazy to do that).
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 this into a 9X13 pan reserving 1 1/2 cup of the mixture to crumble on top.
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.
