Peanut Butter Bars

These no-bake bars taste a lot like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and are often requested by the 9 and 10 year olds in my Primary class. They are very rich, so I like to cut these into small squares. Recipe adapted from

2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 16 whole rectangles)
2 cups powdered (confectioners') sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup smooth peanut butter
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 Tbs. peanut butter
  1. Line a 9 x 13" pan with tin foil and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, crush graham crackers into fine crumbs (Or put in a Ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin).
  3. Melt butter, then pour it into a 1 cup measuring cup, swirl around then pour butter into a medium mixing bowl. Next, scoop 1 cup peanut butter into the emptied buttered measuring cup. This will make peanut butter come right out of the measuring cup with little trouble!
  4. Mix butter, graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar until well blended. Press mixture into foil-lined pan.
  5. In a small glass bowl, melt chocolate chips with 1 Tbs. of peanut butter for 30 seconds at a time, until melted and smooth. Pour over the top of peanut butter mixture and smooth the top.
  6. Place bars in the fridge just until chocolate is set. If bars are too firm, let set for 10-20 minutes at room temperature before cutting. Cut into bars with a sharp knife. Makes about 25 bars.
