Peanut Butter Bars

Last week one of our good friends came over to meet our new bundle of joy and she brought us some peanut butter bars. My husband is obsessed with peanut butter and these were so delicious! We ate them all in just a few days. Last night he wanted some more so I found a recipe online and we made some. They are so easy and delicious! This is my new go to dessert recipe. It only took about 10 mins to make and then about  40-50 minutes to set in the fridge. No baking necessary. Awesome, right? I love that all of the ingredients are things that I usually have on hand too. Five ingredients is all you need for a delicious peanut buttery goodness treat!

I got the recipe from JensFavoriteCookies

1 1/4 cups peanut butter
1 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups crushed graham crackers
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips 

1. In a bowl melt 1 cup butter with 1 cup peanut butter until melted. Add the graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar to the melted butter and peanut butter mixture. Spread mixture evenly in a 9x13 pan. 

2. Melt the chocolate chips with 1/4 cup peanut butter in the microwave 30 seconds at a time until melted, stirring in between. In my microwave it only took one minute to completely melt the chocolate and peanut butter. 

3. Pour chocolate mixture over the bars, spreading evenly over the top. 

4. Chill 40-50 minutes until the chocolate sets.
