Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Another good thing to throw together in a rush before a picnic or potluck, these chocolate peanut butter bars were called “like way fancier Reese’s cups!” at a picnic last month.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup and 4 tablespoons peanut butter, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix the butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and 1 cup of the peanut butter together, stirring until evenly mixed.

Spread evenly into an ungreased 9X13″ pan.

Melt the chocolate chips and remaining 4 tablespoons of peanut butter in a medium bowl, stirring until smooth. Spread the chocolate over the peanut butter mixture.

Refrigerate at least an hour before cutting into bars and serving. If the chocolate separates from a piece while you’re cutting it up, you can just press it back on and it’ll stick.

It’s got a bit more texture than a Reese’s cup, and tastes a bit better. Delicious!
