Easy Peanut Butter Fudge Bars

If you like peanut butter cups watch out! These are so addicting - you really cant just have one. I like them after they have been in the fridge for 24 hours. They are a hearty snack - a little on the rich side but not enough to give you a heart attack. Who doesn't love an easy recipe? Enjoy!

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge Bars
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 cup  Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 package Butter Cake Mix
  • 1 (16 oz.) can Fudge Frosting (or make your own)
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
 Fudge frosting
  • 1/4 cup butter 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Frosting:  Melt butter in small pan on medium heat. Add chocolate chips stirring continuously until they begin melting. Add milk 2 Tbsp at a time - stirring continuously. Add vanilla. Remove from stove and add powdered sugar 2 Tbsp at a time until it reaches the thickness you desire. It will solidify on the bars when in the fridge.

Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 13 X 9-inch pan with no-stick cooking spray.

Combine 1 cup peanut butter, water and egg in large bowl, stirring until smooth. Stir in cake mix until blended and evenly moistened. Spread into prepared pan.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until puffed and light golden brown. Cool completely. Blend frosting with 1/2 cup peanut butter in small bowl. Spread over cooled bars.Refrigerate for 2-4 hours before serving. Enjoy!
