No Bake Peanut Butter Bars- Oh.My.Word.


I love me some peanut butter.
 I grab a big ole spoon and just eat it right out the jar.
 JIF only of course. To me there is no other peanut butter. 
Throw some chocolate on that peanut butter and Oh. My. Word. 
These little peanut butter bars taste like Reese Cups. 
And now you can make them at home. Anytime. Yum. Nuff Said.

Gather: 
2 Sticks of real butter, melted
1.5 cups of honey graham cracker crumbs
1.5 cups JIF peanut butter (plus a little to add to the topping)
3.5 cups powdered sugar
1 bag of chocolate chips, 12 ounce 

Do:
You can make graham cracker crumbs fairly simply. You can either pulse them in the food processor or throw them in a large zip top bag and roll over them with a rolling pin. I used the rolling pin method because it meant less dishes. Combine your peanut butter, melted butter, powdered sugar, and graham cracker crumbs in the mixer to form a peanut butter dough. 
Next, line a 9x13 pan with parchment or wax paper. Press dough into pan. 

Melt chocolate chips with a TBSP or so of peanut butter on 70 percent power until they are smooth. ( I do about a minute, stir and then 45 second intervals until melted and smooth.) I used these. :)

  Spread chocolate over the top. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, take out, cut and then refrigerate again until set. (This makes it easy to get apart rather than sawing them later). Store in the fridge. Make them all the time. YUMMMMMMMM



I originally saw this recipe here. Check it out, great site :)
