More Chocolate. More Peanut Butter.

Sorry, apparently I've got a craving for peanut butter and chocolate this week! Here's another no bake recipe for a chocolate/peanut butter dessert just in case you're craving it too!

No Bake Peanut Butter Squares

2 cups confectioners'/powdered sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Line a 9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil (leaving an overhang on the sides) and set aside. In a large bowl, mix the confectioners' sugar, butter, 1 cup of peanut butter and the vanilla. Next, with a rubber spatula and fold in the graham cracker crumbs. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.

Place the chocolate chips and the remaining 1/4 cup peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals at half power, stirring after each, until fully melted and smooth.

Pour the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter layer and spread it evenly. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until the chocolate is set. Use the foil to lift the bars out of the pan. Remove the foil from the bars and cut into individual squares. Return the squares to the refrigerator in an airtight container for 2 hours, or until firm. Store the squares in the refrigerator until you've devoured them all or had to take them to work to avoid eating them all!
