The weather is starting to warm up in some areas and its hard to turn on the oven to fill a sweet tooth. The solution is make these no bake peanut butter bars. This is a recipe my mother found years ago and we loved coming home to see a pan of these rich and tasty bars in the fridge. A great treat. Enjoy!!
PEANUT BUTTER BARS
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups confectioner sugar
1 cup peanut butter
Ingredients for chocolate topping:
1 ½ cups milk chocolate morsels
4 tablespoons peanut butter
In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners’ sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan.
Melt the chocolate chips with the 4 tablespoons of peanut butter in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the prepared crust. Refrigerate for at least one hour,cut into squares.
