It's my great uncle's 97th birthday next week and since my schedule has been a bit busy, I was looking for a recipe that be pretty quick, that I had all the ingredients for, and that I hadn't used here before. Chocolate Peanut Squares were the winner on all counts. This recipe comes from an old Taste of Home magazine. Simple, sweet, yummy.
Chocolate Peanut Squares
2 cups confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup chocolate chips
4 1/2 tsp peanut butter
1 tsp butter
Line a 9 inch square pan with aluminum foil and butter the foil; set aside.
In a large microwave safe bowl, melt butter in microwave. Add confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, and graham cracker crumbs and combine. Spread into prepared pan.
Combine topping ingredients in a microwave safe bowl; heat in microwave until melted (about 1 minute). Spread over peanut butter layer. Refrigerate until cool.
Using foil, lift out of pan and cut into 1 inch squares.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
