Ingredients
  

  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups graham crackers, crushed
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • cups creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper, set aside. 
  • Using either a stand mixer or a handheld mixer, combine the melted butter, powdered sugar, and graham crackers. 
  • Mix in the 1¼ cups of creamy peanut butter, just until well incorporated. 
  • Evenly spread the peanut butter mixture into the bottom of the baking dish. 
  • In a heat-safe bowl, add the semi-sweet chocolate chips and the remaining 3 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter. Heat for 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval until the peanut butter and chocolate are smooth. 
  • Spread the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter base. 
  • Cut the servings before you put the bars into the refrigerator. (The bars cut much easier this way).
  • Chill the bars for 1 hour.
  • Let the bars sit 10 to 15 minutes, at room temperature, before serving. 

Notes

  • You can either buy graham cracker crumbs or buy the crackers and crush them yourself in a food processor or with a rolling pin.
  • It’s easier to slice the mixture into bars if you do it before you put it in the fridge.
