No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars

Paula Nemzek from KCTS 9 Cooks
Serves 12 to 24
Main Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened just to the point of melting
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
In a large bowl, mix together the butter, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners' sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter. Press mixture evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13-inch pan. Chill for 15 to 20 minutes before spreading the topping over the base. In the microwave, or in a metal bowl over simmering water, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter. Stir occasionally until smooth. If it's molten, let it cool off a few minutes. Spread topping over the prepared crust. Refrigerate for 20 minutes, cut into squares (this way the topping won’t crack), and continue to refrigerate for at least another 40 minutes before serving.
