This recipe is one I came across on Pinterest from the blog, Let’s Dish. It sounded simple and delicious so even though my son can’t take anything with nuts to daycare, I decided to try it as an at-home snack. I’m sure the neighbours won’t mind helping if it turns out too much for the two of us. Hope you enjoy them too!
Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars
1 cup butter melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (I used the food processor to make a fine meal of the graham crackers)
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 cup + 4 tablespoons peanut butter
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners’ sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan. In a metal bowl over simmering water (to create a double boiler), or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the remaining 4 tablespoons of peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the peanut butter layer. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.
