BAKE for 25 to 30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Frost with Creamy Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Frosting.

FOR CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER MILK CHOCOLATE FROSTING:

If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.
