Easy Treats

Often, we are called upon to take treats to social functions, office, parties, etc.  I was called upon to do that just yesterday.  Saturdays are so busy and I needed something quick and easy.  This one was just the ticket!  I found it here

Jen is a wonderfully talented girl and her blog will prove it!


2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter

1.  In a bowl, melt butter and peanut butter together.  Add cracker crumbs, sugar, butter and peanut butter.  Spread mixture evenly into a 9 x 13 pan.
2.  Melt chocolate chips with peanut butter in 30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring between each, until melted and smooth.
3.  Pour chocolate mixture over bars, and frost evenly.
4.  Chill for 40-50 minutes until chocolate is set.

Cook's note:  This couldn't have been more easy.  I would have let it chill a bit longer before cutting because it was a bit crumbly.  But this is such a great recipe for taking places.  Loved it and will use it often.

  1. My sister-in-law makes these and they are to die for. I have a ton of versions that I haven't wanted to try, but I haven't made them because of Jonathan's peanut allergy. I sure hope he grows out of that allergy. The allergist thinks there is a good chance he will. I love peanut butter and chocolate.
