Reese's Peanut Butter Bars

Yield: 10-12 servings

Love peanut butter cups? How about chocolate and peanut butter? You will love this simple recipe and so will your kids.

2 sticks (1 cup) margarine, melted
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
12 oz milk chocolate (chocolate chips or chocolate bar works good)

Line a 9x13" pan with parchment or wax paper.

Mix 2 sticks of butter, powdered sugar, peanut butter, and graham cracker crumbs. Spread mixture on the bottom of the pan.

Melt chocolate and spread over mixture in pan. Let set in a cool place. Remove from pan and cut into desired shapes.

Melting Chocolate:
You can melt the chocolate either in the microwave or in a double boiler.

In a Microwave Oven
Place coarsely chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe container and microwave at MEDIUM (50 percent power) for 1 1/2 to 4 minutes, until the chocolate turns shiny. Remove the container from the microwave and stir the chocolate until completely melted. Stir milk and white chocolates after about 1 1/2 minutes. Because of their milk proteins, they need to be stirred sooner than dark chocolate. (If overheated, these chocolates may become grainy.) 

In a Double Boiler
Place coarsely chopped chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, not simmering, water. Melt the chocolate, stirring until smooth. Remove the top part of the double boiler from the bottom.
