No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

If you love Reese’s peanut butter cups (my personal favorite), than you will love this recipe that requires NO BAKING! Impress your sweetheart, your coworkers or your friends with the classic peanut butter and chocolate combo.

Ingredients:

Yield: 36 bars
• 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
• 1 lb confectioners’ sugar (3 to 3 1/2 cups)
• 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
• 1 cup butter, melted
• 1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Combine graham crumbs, sugar and peanut butter and mix well. This works best if the peanut butter is at room temperature so it spreads easily.
2. Blend in melted butter until the mixture is creamy smooth.
3. Spread the mixture evenly into a 9 x 13 inch pan (metal or glass is fine). Smaller pans will make for thicker bars, bigger pans will give you thinner square.
4. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or in double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, simply fill a pot with water and float a metal bowl in the water. Pour the chocolate chips into the metal bowl and they will melt as the water heats but won’t burn.
5. Spread your melted chocolate over the peanut butter mixture.
6. Chill until just set and cut into bars. If you chill them for too long the chocolate will solidify, making it harder to cut through.
