Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

Ready in 1 hour

This is one of my childhood favorites. A layer of creamy sweet peanut butter topped with a layer of chocolate, remniscent of Reese's peanut butter cups. These squares are quick and simple to make, and are so yummy and addictive! They also freeze well.

"My family has been making this recipe for years as a christmas candy... we make the peanutbutter part and roll it in to balls then dip in melted chocolate chips. Let cool and harden on wax papper... then you have peanutbutter balls!! They are super delicious a true pb and chocolate lovers dream!! Never thought of spreading it in a pan and serving like bars... thanks for the neat idea!"

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 cup Butter; (2 sticks) divided
2 cups Creamy peanut butter; (we use Jif)
1 1/2 cups Graham cracker crumbs
3 cups Powdered (confectioner's) sugar
2 cups Semi-sweet chocolate chips; (12 ounces) (we use Ghirardelli chocolate)

Original recipe makes 24 Servings

Squares  

Preparation

Melt 1/2 cup (1 stick) of the butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, confectioner's sugar, and graham cracker crumbs. This will make a stiff dough.

Spread dough in a lightly greased 9- by 13-inch dish. Press down evenly.

Melt remaining 1/2 cup butter over low heat. Add chocolate chips and keep heat very low. When chocolate is soft, stir gently. Continue heating until lumps are all melted. Stir, and then spread this mixture over the peanut butter layer.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes, then cut into squares. Store in the refrigerator.

Wonderful!! These are mandated for me to bring for every gathering. We've mixed the chocolate topping up some by using sweetened condensed milk to make it more like fudge, also added nuts and rice crispier some.

This tastes so good! It's very sweet and rich, which is probably good because it stops me from eating too much at once. Really glad I made this!

No one in my home cared for these. People said they were bitter. Would probably be better with milk chocolate instead of semisweet
