Peanut Butter Layer
1 ½cupscreamy peanut butter
1 ¼cupsgraham cracker crumbs1 sleeve – approximately 9 crackers, yields just a little over what’s needed
12ouncesmilk chocolate chips
Mix peanut butter and melted butter with a wooden spoon or spatula until well blended.
Crush your graham crackers into crumbs (I use my food processor, but you can also crush them in a zip-top bag with a rolling pin). Combine the graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar and add to the peanut butter mixture. I find it works best to slowly add the dry ingredients into the peanut butter mixture.
Once well combined, press the mixture into the bottom of a parchment lined 9x13 pan and chill. You can do this in the freezer or refrigerator.
Once the peanut butter layer is no longer warm, make the chocolate layer.
Using a double boiler or microwave, melt the chocolate chips and butter together. Stir until well combined and pour over the cooled peanut butter layer.
Allow the chocolate layer to harden, cut into desired size bars and enjoy!
I recommend using a brand of peanut butter such as Jif or Skippy.If graham crackers are not available try using digestive biscuits.Cover leftover bars tightly and refrigerate for up to one week.
