Bar #4: PB&J

It’s the beginning of the school year, and my mind always thinks of peanut butter and jelly…the quintessential lunch staple that is filling millions of lunch boxes each day.  This little bar is for all of the PB&J lovers in the world. Even if you’re not 10 and carrying a Hello Kitty lunch box, you can still have your peanut butter and jelly…and I suggest a glass of milk too.
Shopping List
1 box of yellow cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups of your favorite jam (I used strawberry)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease one 9×13 inch pan.

In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, veggie oil, and eggs with an electric mixer.  Beat in peanut butter.  Spread 2/3 of the mixture across the bottom of your pan.
 Spread your jelly across the top of your base layer in your pan.  Take the remaining 1/3 of your peanut butter batter and dot it across the top.  It won’t spread evenly across the top, so don’t worry!  Just drop it around and when it bakes, it will spread out.

Bake about 30 minutes or until the bars are brown around the edges.  Let the bars cool on the counter at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

You will feel like a kid again with this recipe.  A very happy kid. šŸ™‚
