No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

My husband really wanted peanut butter bars last night but I didn't feel like doing anything too intense so I found these no bake bars that are fantastic. For the graham cracker crumbs, if you put them in the blender you will get a nice smooth crust, but if you like it chunkier, smash them with a rolling pin like I did. This can easily be doubled to put in a 9x13 pan. These are great for letting kids help out as well. The hardest part is waiting for them to set up!


1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons peanut butter

1. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter or margarine, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners' sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased square pan.

2. In the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the prepared crust. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.
