Recipe Monday

I love peanut butter so that is why I'm doing today's recipe.

Peanut Butter Cups

1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs
4 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 c. sticks of butter, melted (3/4 c.)
1 1/2 c. peanut butter
6 oz. chocolate chips
1/2 stick of butter (1/4 c.)

Mix together graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Pour butter over top and mix together. Add in peanut butter and mix together, works best if you use your hands (get messy, but the nice thing is by the time you are mixing all the peanut butter is off your hands). Press into a 9x13 pan. Melt chocolate chips and butter together then pour over top and stick in the fridge until the chocolate is hard.

*I hate measuring so here are a few things if you are like me. It may not be exactly the right amount, but at least I don't have to measure and it turns out just as good. 1) graham crackers, just use one of the packages in the box for the amount you need 2) p.b. use an 18 oz jar (I'm usually really paticular about my p.b. and what brand I use, but for this recipe, the cheapo brand works well 3) chocolate chips, half a bag (that is if it's a 12 oz. bag I know some brands come in 10 oz., so be careful of that)
