COMBINE cake mix and peanuts in large bowl; stir in butter. Stir in evaporated milk (batter will be thick). Spread half of batter into prepared 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

BAKE for 15 minutes.

MICROWAVE 1 1/3 cups morsels and peanut butter in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Spread mixture over baked layer. Drop remaining batter by heaping teaspoon over butterscotch mixture.

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


Incredibly quick and tasty!

I threw these together in no time--they were fabulously chocolatey goodness! Yum! I didn't have peanuts so I just made them tastier and used PB chips. =) I'd recommend melting some PB with the chips for the drizzle so they stick to the bars better. YUM!!!

I loved this

This was one of the best that I have baked from here. Very moist and very good. I will be doing this one again.

Easy and delicious. I would suggest using a rubber spatula sprayed with nonstick spray to spread the base layer.
