No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

We made these over Christmas break.  They were deelish!  You can also make them as peanut butter balls, but the bars were so much easier.

No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
adapted from Amy's Finer Things

1 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 sleeve graham crackers, crushed (about 20 crackers)
3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (milk chocolate is our favorite!)

Melt butter.  Blend with peanut butter and crushed graham crackers (I used my KitchenAid stand mixer).  Sift powdered sugar into peanut butter mixture, one cup at a time (I sprinkle it through a strainer).  Mix until well blended.  Batter will be stiff! 

Press into a 9x13 pan.  Melt chocolate chips; spread over bars.  Refrigerate before cutting into small squares.  (They are as rich as fudge!)



Enjoy!
