Peanut Butter and Jelly Cake Mix Bars

by Laura

Today’s cake mix recipe includes a classic combination – peanut butter and jelly. This recipe is a new family favorite. These Peanut Butter and Jelly Cake Mix Bars taste and look amazing. You really would never guess they are made with a cake mix. They look and taste gourmet. The layers are what make it that way.

I used Smucker’s new natural grape spread for the jelly portion of the recipe. It is one of our new favorite jellies/jams. However, if grape isn’t your thing, strawberry or raspberry jam would also be delicious.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cake Mix Bars


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup grape jelly (or other favorite jam flavor)
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, oil, and peanut butter together until well combined.
  3. Set aside 1/2 cup of the mixture. Press the remaining amount of dough into a sprayed 8 x 8 inch baking pan. (I like to line my pan with foil before greasing for easy removal of the bars)
  4. Microwave jelly for 10-20 second until smooth and easy to spread. Spread over the dough in the pan.
  5. Mix the remaining 1/2 cup dough with the 1 cup peanut butter chips until the dough has reduced to to large crumbles.
  6. Sprinkle the mixture over the jelly.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until it looks golden. I also test the center with a toothpick. Makes 9 bars.

I made these a couple of weeks ago for a bake sale fundraiser and they were the first item that sold out. I didn’t get to try – but heard amazing things! So easy to make!
