1 pkg. plain yellow cake mix
1 c. peanut butter
8 tbsp. butter, melted
2 eggs
2 c. chocolate chips
1 can (14-oz) sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp. butter
1 c. frozen, unsweetened grated coconut, thawed
1 c. chopped pecans
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Mix yelow cake mix, peanut butter, butter, and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute; the mixture will be thick. Reserve 1 1/2 cups for the topping. Transfer the remaining crust mixture to the ungreased 9x13" pan. Using your fingertips, press the crust evenly.

Place chocolate chips, condensed milk, and 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir and cook until chocolate is melted and the mixture is well combined, 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in coconut, pecans, and vanilla until well distributed. Pour the chocolate mixture over the crust and spread it evenly.

Crumble the reserved crust and scatter evenly over the chocolate. Bake in preheated oven at 325 for 20-25 minutes, or until light brown. After allowing it to cool for 30 minutes, cut.
