CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BARS


My friend Abby shared this recipe with me! 

Think Reese's Peanut Butter Cups only 100 times better!





Ingredients

Ingredients: 

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 lb box powdered sugar or 4 cups
  • 9 crushed graham crackers (I used 1/2 sleeve of Ritz Crackers)
  • 1 12oz jar crunchy peanut butter (I used creamy) or 1 1/2 cups
  • 12oz chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips)

Combine butter (melted), powdered sugar, graham crackers, and peanut butter. 

Spread in a 9x13 dish or use a cookie sheet for thinner bars
Line dish with wax paper or parchment paper (or you can butter your pan)


Melt chocolate chips and spread on top. Add M&M's if you are adding candies to the top for decoration. Chill for about 10 minutes and then cut into bars before the chocolate hardens (to prevent the cracking you see above). Let them firm up before serving them! It usually takes about thirty minutes in the refrigerator




Add M&M's to add a seasonal flair!


Be sure to cut these bars about 10 mins. after you put them in the refrigerator to prevent the cracking like you see in the photo here.

WARNING THESE ARE SO GOOD YOU WILL NOT WANT TO STOP EATING
