A Cookie a Day: Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bars


Another match made in heaven, and oh, so easy!

1 Devils Food Cake mix
1/3 c. butter, melted
1 egg

3/4 c. butter, softened
3/4 cup peanut butter
2 t. vanilla
3 c. powdered sugar
2 T. cream or milk
3/4 c. honey roasted peanuts, chopped

1/2 c. cream
12 oz. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Line a 15x10 pan with foil, overhanging edge. Beat together: cake mix, 1/3 c. melted butter and the egg. Press mixture into pan. Bake 12 min.

Combine soft butter, peanut butter and vanilla. Beat 30 seconds. Add powdered sugar, then cream or milk and beat until smooth. Stir in peanuts. Spread over cooled crust and chill.

Bring cream to just a boil. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips and let stand 5 minutes without stirring. Stir until smooth, and spread over peanut butter layer. Cover and chill 2 hours before cutting into bars. Keep in fridge.

Put me in my fluffy robe and slippers, sit my butt on the couch with a pan of these and a big glass of cold milk and I'd be a very happy Pokey!!!

the big "O"!!


Thank you Palma for another beautiful confection and I love the "EZ" part!It's going straight to my recipe box. my girls are lovin the cookies and the aroma from the kitchen this holiday season


PS: the "Buon Natale cookies" turned out good. maybe my dough was too dry? i took your hint and had only 2 break apart. i figured out if one broke..i "glued" it back together with the white icing


do you cook the gingerbread cheese cake with 2 layers of foil wrapped around it? or is that just for cooking the crust? thanks!


YES for the foil, so the water bath doesn't leak through!

Barb Cabot:

Yum, peanut butter and chocolate...a combo hard to beat! Thank you. I love easy too.

You're killing me-y two favorites together! You're amazing Palma!
