I went to a teeny weeny public school in rural Missouri. I went to the same school K-12 and had 21 kids in my graduating class (crazy, eh?) So every single day of my school career K-12 I ate lunch in the same cafeteria. I was a bit of a picky eater, but, this may come as no surprise…but I LOVED desserts. One of my favorites? Peanut butter chocolate squares. Last fall, my mom sent me the recipe for them, and this weekend, I FINALLY made them. They were so simple, and just as yummy as I remember!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars
Servings: 24 Squares
* 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, divided
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.
