Bar 82: Peanut Butter Neiman Marcus Bars

This bar came as the result of begging.  Begging from my children.  Sigh.
Peanut butter reigns supreme at our house and every time I start to make a bar, my two oldest go, “can it be peanut butter?”.  Bless them.  So, on this day, I said “sure” and thus this bar was born…and two happy kiddos licked beaters like it was the best thing ever :).
For the peanut butter people in your house…I give you Bar #82.
Shopping List
1 box of yellow cake mix
4 eggs
1 stick melted butter
1 box of powdered sugar (about 4 cups)
8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease (I use Pam) one 9×13 inch pan.  Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, 2 eggs and melted butter.  Spread in bottom of pan to form your “crust” layer.
In a second bowl, beat the powdered sugar, 2 more eggs, cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth with an electric mixer.

 Spread cream cheese mixture on top of crust mixture.

Bake 35-40 minutes until edges are brown and center set (it will still be slightly wobbly in the middle).
Cool on counter 30 minutes, then refrigerate 2 hours up to 2 days.

Slice into bars and serve.

I hope your family loves this as much as mine.

    I can't get yellow cake mix over here. Would a regular vanilla sponge mix be OK?

    I think this would be so yummy "mixed and matched" with a chocolate cake mix. Definitely nothing better than chocolate & peanut butter!
