Peanut Butter Bars

 You really should cut these before they harden.  I made up this clone of Reese's peanut butter cups and let them go too long.  It was a chore to find a piece that was pretty enough for a picture!

Now with Easter coming up, if you want to save yourself some money and make homemade Peanut Butter Eggs, mold the peanut butter mixture into egg shapes on a cookie sheet and freeze until solid. Dip into melted chocolate and store in fridge.  I have seen these at other times of the year dipped in chocolate, too.  So don't limit yourself to Easter!

Reese's Peanut Butter Bars (No Bake)
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
18 oz jar creamy peanut butter (2 cups)
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 pkg chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet)
Mix crumbs, peanut butter, sugar and butter until smooth. Press into 9 X 13 pan. Melt chips and spread on peanut butter mixture. Chill. Cut into squares and serve.

How funny! I was just thinking about this yesterday. When I was in elementary school our school would make a dessert like this and my mom finally got the recipe because I loved it so much. Yesterday as I ate a spoon of peanut butter this came to mind and I though how good it would be! Glad I kept looking down further on your posts.
