Dressing up a boxed cake mix with peanut butter and melted chocolate chips is the secret to this super easy recipe. My daughter Delleen got this recipe from co-workers and then shared it with me.

  • 1 package chocolate cake mix (regular size)

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

"These are good brownies and the centers are nice and chewy. I think it would have been helpful to add information on melting the chocolate bits to the recipe."
