Peanut Butter Toffee Bars

In honor of Halloween these bars are served with a side of spiders....that is not necessary the rest of the year.   Unless you like spiders. 

What You Need

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 cup peanut butter (I like the Kroger Honey Nut crunchy)
1/2 cup water
2 eggs
1 bag of Heath Bits O Brickle toffee bits
1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

What You Do

Line your 13x9 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.    Preheat your oven to 350 (375 here at altitude).

In a large bowl mix cake mix, peanut butter, water and eggs with a spoon or a electric hand mixer.   Stir in the toffee bits.   Spread in pan.   The batter is thick, you may need to flour your hands to press it in the pan.

Bake 22-27 minutes until golden brown.     Sprinkle chocolate chips over warm bars (you may not need the whole bag - your call) and allow them to sit for 5 minutes until melted.    Spread with an off-set spatula and allow to cool before cutting.  

For any occasion where you need to make spiderwebs out of icing, simply make 3 concentric circles (like a bulls eye) and then use a toothpick from the center to the outside.   As you drag the toothpick through the frosting it will pull outwards, making the web of your dreams.

Happy Halloween!
