Milk Chocolate Peanut Fudge Bars

Oh baby, intense.  I had to try these bars because the mixture of ingredients is quite something.  It’s best not to think about the amount of calories, just enjoy the experience.  Adapted from tasteofhome.com.

1 pkg (18¼ oz) chocolate fudge cake mix
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
3 Tbl milk
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 jar (11¾ oz) hot fudge ice cream topping
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup honey roasted peanuts

Preheat oven to 350°.  In large bowl, combine cake mix and graham cracker crumbs.  Cut in peanut butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  In small bowl, whisk egg and milk, stir into crumb mixture just until moistened.  Set aside 3/4 cup crumb mixture for topping.  Press remaining crumb mixture into sprayed 13″ x 9″ baking pan.

In large bowl, beat cream cheese and ice cream topping until smooth.  Spread over crumb mixture in pan.  Sprinkle with milk chocolate chips, peanuts and reserved crumb mixture.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until set.  Cool on wire rack.  Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.  Cut into bars.
