Falling into the category of just too yummy....We are pretty serious Reese's fans around here. I've even developed a granola flavor with chocolate and peanut butter for Bryan. When Jacob decided today was his stuffed Guinea pig, Hampie's, birthday, we decided that it was the perfect occasion to make this quick and tasty treat.
Peanut Butter Bars
1 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons peanut butter
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 9x13 inch pan.
In a metal bowl over simmering water, or 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.
Tip: I obliterate the graham crackers in my food processor then dump the next 3 ingredients in. Bam! Bottom layer mixed in a flash.
