Easy Dessert: PB Choc Chip Bars

A coworker and I head up the "Best Teen Chef" club here at school, and we try to do a few simple things and a few more involved things throughout the year. We only have 45 minutes to make, cook, serve, and clean, so we have to be quick and creative!
We got this from the 101 Things to do With a Cake Mix book, which is pretty fun to look through! I love that everything is so simple and if you were invited somewhere last minute, they are so quick to throw together. We had spare time at the end, even after baking and answering questions about different things AND doing a survey for next year!

No pictures--picture this in your head: 18 teenagers waiting to eat something that smells like peanut buttery chocolatey goodness in the middle of the morning when their stomachs growl the most! They were GONE!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

1 yellow cake mix (or chocolate chip cake mix)
2 eggs
1/3 c vegetable oil
1/2 c peanut butter (chunky preferred)
1 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix together cake mix, eggs, and oil. Mix in peanut butter. Stir in chocolate chips.
Pat the mixture into a 9x13 inch pan.
Bake 14-17 minutes, or until golden brown.
