1 TBS shortening
your favorite white cake mix
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with wax or parchment paper, then grease and flour the pans. Tap to remove excess flour; set aside.
In a small bowl, stir together the cocoa, confectioners' sugar, butter and 2 tablespoons hot water until smooth and set aside. In microwavable bowl, place peanut butter chips and shortening. Microwave on high for 1 minute, or until chips are melted and smooth when stirred.
In large bowl, combine cake mix, brown sugar, 1-1/4 cups water, eggs and reserved melted peanut butter mixture; beat on low speed of electric mixer until moistened. Increase speed to medium, beat 2 minutes until smooth.
Remove 1-1/2 cups of the batter and add it to the reserved cocoa mixture; blend well. Pour the peanut butter flavored batter into the prepared pan. Drop spoonfuls of the chocolate batter on top. Swirl with a knife or spatula for a marbled effect.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and frost. Sprinkle with the chopped Reese's peanut butter cups. Peanut butter frosting recipe below.
