1 yellow cake mix
1 c. peanut butter (creamy or crunchy, your choice)
1 stick butter, melted
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
2 T. butter
1 t. vanilla
In a bowl, combine cake mix, peanut butter, melted butter, and eggs. Reserve one cup for the topping, and press the remaining mixture into a 13x9 baking pan.
In a saucepan, heat the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and butter over low heat; stir until blended. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Pour over crust. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
A Note From The Little Lady: If you'd like, stir in 1 cup of sweetened flaked coconut to chocolate/milk mixture when adding vanilla extract.
