No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Go ahead and drool! These things are amazing :)


Best of all, they use up all those graham crackers that I have lying around.  My middle son LOVES graham crackers (it's an unnatural obsession), but he REFUSES to eat them if they're broken (I told you, unnatural).  Anyway,  I now have the perfect way to use them up (other than graham cracker crusts for cheesecake - which I have NO willpower against)!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups  powdered sugar
1-1/2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
1 cup  Creamy Peanut Butter
1-1/2 pkg. (8 squares each) Semi-Sweet Chocolate (12 squares), melted  (In an effort to use what was in the pantry, I used about 3/4 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips instead and they worked great)

LINE 9 x 9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan.
MELT butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 45 sec. Add next 3 ingredients; mix well. Spread into prepared pan; cover with chocolate.  (I also sprinkled mine with holiday sprinkles to make them a little more festive.)
CUT partially through dessert to mark 48 squares. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Use foil handles to remove dessert from pan; cut into squares.
 

Enjoy!!
