Peanut Butter Bars



I believe I saw these on Amber's blog and they were fantastic! It was like eating a big 'ol Reese's!

INGREDIENTS

1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs (very finely crushed)
2 cups powdered sugar
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 ½ cups chocolate chips (I used half milk chocolate and half semi-sweet)

DIRECTIONS

Mix the crumbs and sugar until completely combined.
Add the melted butter and peanut butter to the mixture above.
Mix well and press into a 9x13 inch pan.
Melt the chocolate chips in microwave
Spread chocolate over the bars.
Refrigerate until hard.
Let sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before cutting.

My Notes: Next time I want to try them out in an 8X8 or 9X9 dish so they are nice and thick!

Hey Melissa, you weren't kidding with that foodie thing were you? BTW, my family teased me growing up, calling me Chef Tell because I was always in the kitchen experimenting or taking over for Mom. I feel it is very appropriate to use for my blogger name. If you don't recognize the pirate, recall a few days ago at your office...just less facial hair/beads and garb.
