Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Bars - yummy and easy!

I love Reeses Peanut butter cups.  My daughter is also a big fan.  I think we could down 3 packages each at a time.  When I saw this recipe from Baker Lady on pinterest, I knew I just had to try it.  For Brittany's sake...........and mine!  ;0)

I changed the recipe just a little bit.  I didn't want to make a 9x13 pan because I knew we could eat the whole thing.  So I halved the recipe, but added a little more chocolate chips, because I like my chocolate layer to be a little thicker than what it ended up with only half the recipe.

1/2 c melted butter (actually I'd do just 1 Tablespoon less than 1/2 c, it was a little softer than I'd like.)
1 c graham cracker crumbs (crushed in tiny crumbs)
1 c confectioners sugar
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Mix the graham crackers, powdered sugar,  1/2 c peanut butter, and melted butter together.

Should look like this.


Spread it into an ungreased pan. 

Next, melt the chocolate chips and the peanut butter.  I got so excited about how good it was going to taste that I forgot to take a picture---but you know what peanut butter and chocolate chips look like. :)  It only took 1 min. in our microwave.


Spread the chocolate mixture on top of the peanut butter & graham cracker mixture.

5  Put it in the fridge for 1 hour.

 6  Cut into bars.

7   Try not to eat the whole thing in one sitting!!
