Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen: Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Bars

Well, I told the girls we were going to be making cookies every day this week except for Monday. Yesterday we made Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Bars. I had made them on Sunday to take to our Christmas Program at church and was impressed with how easy they are to make. Perfect for Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen! So, daddy needed a dessert to take to his Christmas Party at work, again, perfect.

Getting ready. Tabitha had already read the ingredients and Amelia helped get them ready.

1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter melted
2 eggs
(those are the ingredients that get mixed in the bowl first)







Then we put the following into the saucepan:
1 bag chocolate chips
2 tbs butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk





While the chocolate chips melted we finished mixing the cake mixture and the girls helped press them into the pans. (We needed to reserve 1 1/2 cups for the topping) It is supposed to go into one 9x13 pan. Unfortunately, my pans are all rusty so we use one 8x8 and one 9x9 pan. It works, that is all that counts. 




When the chocolate chips are melted, we stirred and added 1 tsp of vanilla. Then we poured it on top of the cake mixture.


Then I crumbled the remaining cake mixture on top and baked it at 325 degrees for 23 minutes (20-25 min is the recommended time).

As you can see, I had a hard time getting a picture as Hannah wanted in.



Here is the recipe in full
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter melted
2 eggs
1 bag chocolate chips
2 tbs butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1tsp vanilla

I found this recipe over at Making Mama Happy.



Do you have your children help you in the kitchen?  What lessons do they learn? Do you have any kid friendly recipes to share?
