Peanut Butter Bars

I found this recipe today on this gal’s blog.

These are kind of a cross between candy and a bar cookie. They are rich, but not over powering. Mr. Smith maintains that there is too much peanut butter and not enough chocolate. I, of course, feel that there is no such thing as too much peanut butter. What an insane notion! Obviously, this is a dispute that will NEVER be settled. Two oldest children duking it out over something so trivial. Perhaps this dispute will supplant the Abraham Lincoln argument (was he, or was he not a good president, I say yes, Mr. Smith, not so much…go ahead talk amongst yourselves)

Anyway, I am always looking for new ways to increase the amount of peanut butter in my diet, these fit the bill perfectly.

1 cup butter

1 cup peanut butter

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

2 cups confectioner sugar

1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

4 Tablespoons peanut butter

Melt the butter and peanut butter together. Stir in graham cracker crumbs and sugar until well blended. Spread peanut butter mixture in 9 x 13″ pan. Melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter together and stir until well blended. Spread chocolate mixture on top of peanut butter mixture. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
