Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars are an easy dessert recipe using cake mix.
These squares only take five minutes of prep time and then up to thirty minutes in the oven.
I am always looking to try out new desserts and since I had some yellow cake mix on hand I decided to whip up some cake mix cookie bars.
I love regular chocolate chip cookie bars but I decided to take it up a notch and add some Reese’s Pieces candies along with the chocolate chips.

I love peanut butter so I am always looking for ways to incorporate it into recipes and tossing in some Reese’s Pieces is an easy way to do it.
These cookie bars are perfect for when you are short on time but still want a delicious treat to impress your guests.
They require very little prep time before baking and use just five ingredients.
Yellow cake mix forms the base of this dessert and chocolate chips and Reese’s Pieces candies are tossed in to add flavour and richness.
I started out by preparing the cake mix using eggs and butter.
Once the mixture was fully combined I stirred in the chocolate chips and Reese’s Pieces candies.
Then I poured the mixture into a greased 9 x 13 inch cake pan and spread it evenly.
The pan was placed in the oven and baked until the top was golden brown.
I allowed the bars to cool a bit before cutting them.
If you try and cut them when they are too hot they will not hold together very well.
These bars are always good but I love to eat them when they are still warm from the oven.
