Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F. Liberally grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with baking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, eggs, oil, and peanut butter until combined. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Place the peanut butter cups gently into the mixture. Four rows of six each. Top with the prepared brownie batter.

Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out mostly clean. Cool completely.

For the frosting:
In the bowl of stand mixer, beat together butter, peanut butter, and vanilla until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar until frosting is fluffy but still soft. It won't be creamy, more soft like dough. Spread onto cooled bars.
