“This took 15 minutes to prepare yet I feel a step closer to a certified chef.”
Do you love peanut butter? How about a chocolate-y graham cracker-y goodness? Yeah, I thought so.
So.. you can kinda tell from the title where this is going. 5 ingredients, 15-20 minutes of prep, and you have some delicious post-dinner treats that took little time and $$ to prepare.
The recipe I used: https://chefsavvy.com/peanut-butter-chocolate-bars/
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
1. creamy peanut butter – 1 1/2 cups
2. powdered sugar – 1 1/2 cups
3. chocolate chips – 1 1/2 cups
4. butter (melted) – 1 cup = 2 sticks
5. graham crackers (crushed) – 2 cups
Start out by spraying your 9×13″ baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside while you prepare the mixture.
You’ll want your butter to be melted and your graham crackers crushed. You can crush the graham crackers in a Ziploc bag with anything heavy you have in the kitchen.
Combine ingredients: 1 cup peanut butter, powdered sugar, melted butter, and crushed graham crackers. Mix together until everything is thoroughly combined, and you reach an even consistency.
Once finished stirring, let’s move this mix to your baking pan and spread evenly on the bottom of the pan. Let this sit while we prepare the chocolate spread.
In a microwave-safe dish, add the chocolate chips and remaining 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Heat in the microwave in 15 second intervals (stirring in between), until the mixture is completely melted. Next you will want to take a spoon and drizzle this evenly over your peanut butter graham cracker mix. You can also use a spatula to coat the top of the mixture as well.
Place your pan in the refrigerator and let cool at least 1-1.5 hours before you cut into bars. And now you have a delicious treat to share with all of your friends! Let me say.. this makes a lot. You’d have to have a HUGE sweet tooth to finish this on your own in less than a couple weeks. I’d highly recommend sharing to save the calories .. or not!
