  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup butter or margarine (2 sticks)
  • 1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup dairy sour cream
  • 3/4 cup REESE'S Creamy Peanut Butter
  • CHOCOLATE TOPPING (recipe follows)

Directions

  • 1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly-roll pan.
  • 2. Combine water, butter and cocoa in small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture boils; boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat; set aside.

Prepare CHOCOLATE TOPPING; carefully spread over top, covering peanut butter. Allow topping to set; cut into squares. 18 servings.
