Xmas Baking

For some reason I am craving all the Xmas goodies I used to eat when I was a kid. I make a mean shortbread cookie but I want something even better. Below is a recipe that was made two or three time each holiday season when I was growing up. Enjoy

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together butter or margarine, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13" baking pan.

In the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, melt the chocolate chips with the 4 tablespoons peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread on top of the mixture in the baking pan.

Refrigerate for about 1 hour before cutting into bars.

Makes about 24 but yield depends on how big or small you cut the bars/squares.
