Boyfriend Impresser Bars

A few days ago I mentioned that I have an Amish cookbook with a recipe for “Boyfriend Impresser Bars” and I have been INUNDATED with requests for that recipe.

Which makes me think there are a lot of sweet mamas out there working hard to help their beautiful daughters catch worthy gentleman callers.

And who am I to stand between a cookie and true love?

So here’s the recipe:

(Please note that the Amish work off about 4,000+ calories a day…so do not send me any e-mails complaining about the calorie count of this recipe! Just…hit the treadmill!)

1 cake mix
2 (8 oz.) cream cheese blocks
2 cups peanut butter
2 (12 oz.) Cool Whip containers
mini chocolate chips (optional)

Prepare cake as directed on box. Pour into two 13″ x9″ x 2″ cake pans. Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Combine peanut butter and cream cheese. Beat in milk until desired spreading consistency. Spread a thin layer on hot cake. Fold Cool Whip in leftover peanut butter mixture and spread on cooled cake. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and serve with love. Leftovers can be frozen.

Oh! One other thing.

If these work…please invite me to the wedding! I love weddings.
