Chocolate Caramel Peanut Butter Bars - made with a cake mix, oats, peanut butter, caramel, cream cheese and chocolate!

I love chocolate. And peanut butter. And caramel. Put ’em all together to make these amazing Chocolate Caramel Peanut Butter Bars! The base of the recipe is a white cake mix which makes these bars extremely easy and fast to make. You don’t even have to add oil or water – just some oats, a little bit of milk, and an egg, along with a large serving of peanut butter!

The next layer in these quick and easy dessert bars is made of caramel topping and cream cheese…mixed together! Why have I never thought of mixing caramel and cream cheese together before?!?! Once you mix this layer together, make sure to try a little taste. And then I dare you to stop with just one lick. Just try to save enough to still be able to make your dessert!

The chocolate chips come next, followed by the rest of the crust mixture on top. These bars are very rich, and like all chocolatey, peanut butter, caramel treats, they taste better served warm. With a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
