Maggie (twin A) has been in the kitchen this afternoon cooking up a batch of her favorite peanut butter bars. She got the recipe last year in her Food and Nutrition class. They are delicious, but very rich. A big glass of milk is the perfect accompaniment!
18 oz. jar crunchy peanut butter
2 sticks of butter, melted
2 packages graham crackers (about 18 large rectangles)
3 1/4 cups confectioners sugar
1 bag (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 stick butter
Mix peanut butter and 2 sticks melted butter in mixer. Crush graham crackers with a rolling pin and add to mixer. Gradually add in the confectioners sugar. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
Melt the semi- sweet chocolate chips and one stick of butter in a saucepan on the stove. Spread
evenly over top of bars.
Chill for 1 hour and enjoy!
