peanut butter bars recipe (1) 

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup + 3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 1/2-2 cups chocolate chips

Directions:
Line 9x13 pan with tinfoil or wax paper. Mix together melted butter, graham crackers, powdered sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter in a bowl. Add mixture to the lined pan and spread evenly on bottom. Melt chocoalte chips and remaining peanut butter in microwave. (Be sure to only warm in 15-30 second increments and stir in between!) I prefer mine to have a little more chocolate, so I like using 2 cups of chocolate chips. Spread melted chocoalte over peanut mixture in the pan. Place in fridge for 1-2 hours. To cut, take the mixture and liner out of the pan for easy cutting!

*I prefer to keep these in the fridge so the chocolate doesn’t melt or get too soft when sitting out!
