Recipe: Buckeye Cookie Bars


Growing up in the Midwest and attending a Big 10 university, I associate Buckeyes with Ohio State and not with a combination of chocolate and peanut butter.  Peanut butter and chocolate is always a winning combination.  I remember the Reese's PB Cup commercials that just showed someone dipping a chocolate bar into a jar of peanut butter.  This is a little more subtle than that...but not much.

From the Eagle Brand Classic Recipes book:   

1 (18.25 oz) package chocolate cake mix (used devil's food)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 cup chopped peanuts
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk (used fat-free)
1/2 cup peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl combine cake mix, oil and egg and beat until crumbly.  Stir in peanuts.  Save 1 1/2 cups of the crumb mix and press the remaining in the bottom of a greased 13x9 baking pan.

Beat sweetened condensed milk with peanut butter until smooth.  Pour over prepared crust. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture on top.   Bake 25-30 minutes until set.  Cool and cut into bars (again - small for easy guilt-free sharing).
