Peanut Butter Cups

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

Justin says “these are the best ever”, that’s all you need to know, right?! These peanut butter cup bars have been Justin’s favorite since I’ve known him (so forever)! Seeing these are Justin’s favorite though, he is helping me make them, write, and post this blog. See if you can find the parts he wrote ;-)

2 sticks margarine
1 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs/powder (pulsing the graham crackers in a food processor works best)
1 cup peanut butter
2 1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 cups milk chocolate chips (I use the entire bag)

In a large bowl liquefy the margarine into a buttery mess in the microwave (cook for 45 seconds). Take the bowl out of the microwave (yes, we need to specify) and add the peanut butter to it. Destroy the structural integrity of the graham crackers in the food processor and measure 1 3/4 cup into the bowl. Mix margarine, peanut butter, and graham crackers until it’s runny with chunkage. Add in the powdered sugar and enlist your man servant to stir well. When everything is mixed (you will no longer see the white powdered sugar), put it in a 9x13 pan. Melt chocolate chips and frost over the top.

(In case you can’t follow the lovely directions Justin provided… Add graham crackers, peanut butter, and sugar to the melted butter. Mix Well. Put into 9x13 pan and top with melted chocolate chips.)

Do you bake the graham cracker "chunkage"? :)

Nope, no baking. You just put the graham cracker chunkage in the pan, pour over melted chocolate chips, and let dry.
