Many people count down until it’s “that” time of year. Girl Scout Cookie time. There’s an app to locate cookies. That’s slightly creepy. No? Yes? No?
Normally I am not that person, but since Pinterest exists, I’ve really become that person. I was casually roaming the website when this recipe fell into my lap. (My pretend, computer lap). Of course I had to try it.
Every Sunday (for the most part) one of my friends and I have Sunday dinner. Sometimes we chill out and make something small like tacos or a pizza (Publix pizza dough rules!) or we go all out and a get a little fancy. No matter the style we always make dessert. Its our way of simply having a good dinner once a week. This time, I made her – and then my coworkers – enjoy this special little gem. Everyone asked me what it’s called… I had no idea, so I labeled it “happiness”. Hopefully you find it to be worthy of the name.
Oh…and…I forgot to take a picture of it. Because it was delicious and I didn’t stop and think! But the blog I got the recipe from (above) took amazing pictures that I wouldn’t be able to live up to anyway! Definitely check those out!
What you need:
- A 9×13 pan
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 box tagalongs
What you do:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. You can either line your pan with nonstick aluminum foil or wax paper or you can spray generously with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a bowl, mix the cake mix, butter, and egg together until a dough forms. Once it forms, spread it out into your pan. For me, this part was harder than I thought it would be, but my mind plays tricks sometimes!
- Top with chocolate chips. (Much simpler!)
- In a small bowl, mix together the condensed milk and peanut butter. Once combined, pour over the cake and chocolate chips. Spread with a spatula if needed.
- Top with chopped tagalongs!
- Bake in the oven for 23 – 25 minutes (I did mine for 23).
- Now for choices: I didn’t let mine cool – I topped with some ice cream and devoured it. It was delicious. I left the rest in the fridge overnight which leaves the next option: Let cool completely, cut into squares, and enjoy! Both were absolutely amazing, so you pick!
