A couple of weeks ago we made peanut butter bars for playgroup. I found the recipe on allrecipes.com. The kids loved ‘cooking’ and even with a playgroup of 16 kids everyone had a turn helping and it turned out deliciously. We didn’t have the perfect measurements so this recipe is a little forgiving if you don’t get the ingredients just right. It’s also a perfect recipe to make without a full kitchen. All you need is a microwave and a refrigerator.
Mix together in a bowl:
- 1 cup melted butter
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup peanut butter
You may have to use your hands to get it really mixed together. press into a 9 x 13 pan. We first sprinkled the pan with powdered sugar because it felt a little sticky.
Microwave the following for about 90 seconds (time varies by microwave)
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 4 tablespoons peanut butter
Mix together. Then pour chocolate on top of the peanut butter mixture. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cut and serve.
