Peanut Butter and Jelly bars
Spring Break's over - at least here in Nevada - but it doesn't stop the kids' cravings for good stuff to eat. Then again, maybe we should say all kids large and small! Here is a great recipe found by browsing (I sure do love the internet sometimes):
PBJ Bars - Totally Yum!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars
1 white cake mix 2 eggs 1/3 cup canola oil 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter (or creamy) 1/2 cup grape jelly (or other flavor) 1 cup peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix together cake mix, eggs, oil and peanut butter.
Set aside 1/2 cup of the mixture.
Press remaining mixture into a parchment lined, greased 8x8" square pan.
Spread jelly over the crust in pan.
Mix the 1/2 cup of cookie mixture with the peanut butter chips until large crumbles appear.
Sprinkle the crumbles evenly over the crust in the pan.
