Peanut Butter Fudge Bars – Favorite Ingredient Friday

My cousin Jenn, made this recently so we have a picture courtesy of her.

1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine peanut butter, egg and oil until smooth. Add cake mix and mix well. Press 2/3 of mixture into bottom of 13×9 pan. Bake 10 minutes.

In a saucepan heat together butter, milk and chocolate chips over low heat until melted, blended and smooth. Watch closely so it doesn’t burn.

Pour evenly over baked crust. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture evenly over chocolate mixture. Bake 20-25 minutes.

Cool completely before cutting.

I have successfully experimented with this by changing the cake mix flavor and the chip flavors. Use your imagination.

These look delicious and easy. My little granddaughter will be so happy to help me make these. Of course her grandad will love it as well.


This recipe makes me wish I hadn’t started Weight Watchers this week. I am definitely giving this a try in the near future though. Thank you so much for sharing!!

Why didn’t you call me and tell me to pick up cake mix while I was at the store today??? I have all the other ingredients for this! Now, I’m really wanting to try this and have no cake mix! Remind me to get it next time hehe 😉
