No Bake Chocolate/Peanut Butter Bars
In the summer, I am all about not turning on the oven, how about you? Try this one on for size at your next gathering, and you won’t even break a sweat!
No Bake Cocolate/Peanut Butter Bars
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup butter-melted
1 (12 ounce) bag chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening
In a 9 x 13 pan, combine the graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and the peanut butter; mix well. Mix in the melted butter and stir to combine, press the mixture into the bottom of the pan.
Place the chocolate chips and shortening in a microwaveable bowl. Heat for 30 second intervals, mixing after each, until the chips are almost melted. Then stir well to combine and completely melt the chips.
Pour over the peanut butter mixture and spread evenly. Chill until just set, then cut into bars.
