No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

Comment on this recipe

"When I saw this recipe in a booklet put out by a Scout Troop, I thought it looked similar to the Peanut Butter Balls, but faster to make.

"When I took them to a church function, one little boy in particular couldn't seem to get enough of them."

Ingredients

BASE:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts (optional)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup chunky peanut butter
TOPPING:
1-1/2 cups milk chocolate chips

Instructions

Grease 11x17-inch pan. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and chopped nuts. Add peanut butter and melted butter and mix well. Press mixture into greased pan. Melt chocolate chips over low heat. Spread over base. Chill until set before cutting. Makes 30 bars.
