::{Just like Reese's, Peanut Butter Bars}::

Warning:  These bars are very, very tasty and very, very easy to make!  They taste so much like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.  Even my hubby, who does not have much of a sweet tooth at all, loved them. You have been warned...  
Like most of my favorite recipes these days, I found this on Pinterest, and I knew just by looking at the pictures, I had to make them!  Needless to say, they cannot stay in my house, and the majority of them will be sent with my husband to the bank for his coworkers to enjoy... Otherwise I would eat the whole pan, tonight.  Yum!


Peanut Butter Bars

(adapted from Baker Lady)

1 cup butter melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (grind them in a food processor; think tiny granules.)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup + 4 tablespoons peanut butter
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and 1 cup of the peanut butter until well blended. 
  2. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan. 
  3. Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate and peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth.  If you don’t have a double boiler like me, you can create one by placing a mixing bowl on top of a soup pot.  Boil water in the soup pot.  The steam will create enough heat to keep your chocolate melted but not enough to burn it. 
  4. Spread the melted chocolate over the peanut butter layer.
  5. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting them into squares.  
  6. Enjoy!
