- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
- 1 cup chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet)
- 1 teaspoon of peanut butter
- In a large bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, butter, confectioners' sugar and peanut butter.
- Mix until well-combined.
- Spread the mixture in a lightly greased 9" x 13" pan.
- Chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
- While the peanut butter layer is chilling, melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter, in a microwave.
- Spread the chocolate over the peanut butter.
- Cut the bars into squares, but leave them in the pan. Return them to refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour. Yield: about 2 dozen squares.
- More peanut butter may need to be added to the chocolate chips if it's not smooth enough as it melts.
- Keep in the refrigerator until ready to eat as well as any leftovers.
