RECIPE: Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars from Kasey's Kitchen

This recipe is so simple that I'm kind of embarrassed by it's "duh"-factor. If you love peanut butter cups than this is the dessert for you. If you don't... find someone who does love them and share! They are perfect to bring to a party or eat a whole batch while you binge on Netflix. I don't judge. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 c peanut butter (chunky will give it a good crunch!)
  • 1 c butter
  • ¼ brown sugar
  • 1 ¾ c powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 sleeve of graham crackers
  • 1 ½ c chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • pinch of salt

What To Do:

  1. In a saucepan, melt the butter down then add in both sugars, vanilla and peanut butter. Once mixed, remove from heat.
  2. In a chopper or food processor, pulverize graham crackers into crumbs.
  3. Add the crushed graham crackers to the peanut butter mixture and stir until a thick dough forms.
  4. Press the dough into a brownie pan lined with parchment or wax paper.
  5. Melt the chocolate chips with the oil in a double boiler or in the microwave in 30 second increments.
  6. Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter dough and smooth out to create a good size layer.
  7. Store in the freezer for 45 minutes or until chocolate is completely hard. 
  8. Cut into squares and serve.
