Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
 
 
Serves: 20-24 bars
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1½ cups graham cracker crumbs (I used 18 whole graham crackers to make the crumbs)
  • 1⅔ cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Line and grease a 9x13 inch pan with aluminum foil. In a food processor, grind up your graham crackers (unless you have store-bought crumbs).
  2. Add the butter, peanut butter, and sugar to your crumbs and process until a ball forms (you can also beat everything together in your mixer if your processor/blender/whatever can't do it).
  3. Press the mixture into the pan. I found that using my hands worked best.
  4. Over a double-boiler, or carefully in the microwave or in a small sauce pan over the stove, melt the chocolate chips, stirring often to prevent burning. Spread the melted chocolate over peanut butter mixture.
  5. Chill in refrigerator for about an hour. Allow to come to room temperature before cutting into squares. Store in the refrigerator, or better yet, the freezer!
