Sinfully Peanut Buttery Chocolate Bars

I figured since November is peanut butter lovers month I had to break this recipe out because I can tell you right now they are the most sinfully peanut buttery lovers dream.  They will literally make you want to hit the gym afterwards but oh so worth every sinful bite!  Makes my 46 year old slowed down metabolism long for younger days hahahaha.  I love peanut butter and yep, I am one of those who can just eat it out of the jar with a spoon.  With that said lets get you started on making them.

What You Need

1 cup of melted butter
2 cups of golden graham crackers made into crumbs
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 level cup of your favorite creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips (use your favorite chocolate we are a Hershey family)
Additional 4 tablespoons of peanut butter set aside
A 9x13 glass pan

Lets Make Them!
  • Mix together in a medium size mixing bowl your cracker crumbs, butter, powdered sugar and the 1 cup of peanut butter until blended nice and creamy
  • Pour your crumbs into your ungreased pan and press them evenly on the bottom
  • In a metal bowl over simmer water, temper/melt the chocolate chips with the 4 tablespoons of peanut butter, stirring occasionally until nice and smooth.  See below for example in tempering chocolate.
  •  Pour your chocolate mixture over your cracker crumb crust and spread evenly and place in your fridge uncovered for about an hour before cutting into squares.  You don't want to cover the top of your mixture because you do not want any water condensation hitting your chocolate or it will turn grainy. Water and chocolate do not mix!
Until next time, see you in the kitchen
