I like to call this recipe Peanut Butter Cups Squared. Not only because they come out in square shaped bars, but also because the peanut buttery and chocolaty goodness has doubled when making it this way.

Here’s what you need:

1 cup butter melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 cup + 4 tablespoons peanut butter
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners’ sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended.

Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan.

I like to chill the PB layer for 20 mins. before moving on to the chocolate.

In a metal bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the peanut butter layer. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into.
