Pretty Little Peanut Butter Bars




This is a no-brainer dessert for parties, girl's night, or your next adventure. I mean, you can grab a bar before darting off after a mysterious figure in a black hoodie, you can comfortably eat one while locked in a confined space, and you can even mow down a whole batch after your find out you're heading to the slammer and you have no clue why. No big deal. 



Ingredients:
1 c peanut butter (chunky will give it a good crunch!)
1 c butter
¼ brown sugar
1 ¾ c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 sleeve of graham crackers
1 ½ c chocolate chips
1 tsp vegetable oil
pinch of salt


What To Do:
In a saucepan, melt the butter down then add in both sugars, vanilla and peanut butter. Once mixed, remove from heat.

In a chopper or food processor, pulverize graham crackers into crumbs.

Add the crushed graham crackers to the peanut butter mixture and stir until a thick dough forms.

Press the dough into a brownie pan lined with parchment or wax paper.

Melt the chocolate chips with the oil in a double boiler or in the microwave in 30 second increments.

Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter dough and smooth out to create a good size layer.

Store in the freeze for 45 minutes or until chocolate is completely hard.

Cut into squares and serve.
