Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Ok, Ok, so I have been Baking alot! A real lot! I really don't know what my deal is other than I've been coming across some pretty darn good looking recipes and I really just can't help myself!  I really need to learn to control myself and just stick to drooling over the pictures instead of the actual dessert... 
Anyways, enough about my large waistline, lets get back to the recipe.  These beauties are so simple to make and REALLY simple to eat.  Oh and did I mention they are chocolate and peanut butter; pretty much one of the best combinations out there!

For the crust and topping:
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter (melted)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 eggs

For the chocolate filling:
1 (12oz) pkg chocolate chips ( I used semi-sweet but milk chocolate would work great too)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tbsp. butter
2 tsp. vanilla

For the crust, combine all ingredients and press into a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish, reserving
1 1/2 cups of the mixture to crumble over the top.

Over low heat, melt the choco chips, milk, and butter. Once melted stir in the vanilla.  Pour chocolate mixture over the crust  and crumble remaining cake mixture over the filling.  Bake @*350 for 20-25 minutes.  Cool completely before eating.  (I liked the flavor of the bars best when they were completely cooled)
