Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, confectioners' sugar and peanut butter. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or over a double boiler. Spread over the bottom layer and sprinkle with chopped nuts (if desired). Chill for 20 to 30 minutes, then cut into squares. Do not chill for too long or the top will crack when cutting which is not as attractive.

I had to use more peanut butter than on the recipe, because the bars were Way too crumbly. Even after I added more (and a little butter), they would stay together for a little while, but crumble anyways. The chocolate doesn't stick to the bars, and it's best to melt the chocolate chips on the stove, cause I burnt mine in the microwave! =) This recipe does taste really good though, and exactly like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Great to make if you don't mind it being VERY crumbly and powdery. I would dip apple slices in the powder stuff, and it tasted great!

I tried this as an after school snack for my son. The problem I found was that the crust was too dry and fell apart. Next time I try this, I am going to add some butter to the crust, like making a graham cracker crust for a pie. Other than the crust, this recipe was really good and was a hit with my son!
