Peanut Butter Candy Bars

Got basic pantry items?
Then you can make-your-own candy bar and have a super sweet treat!

These should have been cut in half-of-what-you-see size (and perhaps a larger pan so they wouldn't be quite as thick)...but....
Kemmie cut them, and teenage boys see things -differently.
You know- sorta like when he looks at his hair and thinks "cool" and I look at his hair and think "h a i r c u t!"
I looked and tasted these bars and thought "bite size" and he looked at them and thought "man size!"
Oh well- at least we see eye to eye on how yummy they are! :)

Peanut Butter Candy Bars

1 2/3 graham cracker crumbs*
3 cups powdered sugar 
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup melted butter
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix crumbs, sugar, and peanut putter. Pour melted butter over mixture and stir well. 
Press into sprayed or buttered baking pan.**
Melt chocolate chips and spread over peanut butter mixture. 
Cool completely before slicing.

*Keep it more frugal and make your own crumbs from graham crackers!
**I used an 8x8 but should have used an 9x9 or 9x10.
You can also cool them in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes.
