Sure you could go out and just BUY a package of Reese's, but how can you be sure you'll really get close to a full cup of butter? You can't. And what assurance do you have that you'll be consuming almost 2 cups powdered sugar? None, whatsoever. Why take the chance? It's crazy, I tell ya! Just make these at home, consume the entire pan without sharing any with your family, and you'll be sure just exactly what your getting.
Seriously...it's so good, it made me a little weak in the knees. Or maybe that was the crash after the sugar high. Whatever, I'll take it.
Here is her recipe:
Ingredients: 1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
To make bars:Melt 1/2 cup of butter over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in confectioners' sugar. Add peanut butter and graham cracker crumbs, stirring until creamy. Spread mixture in square (8x8" or 9x9") pan. Pat down evenly.
To make topping: On low heat in a saucepan add 1/4 cup butter and the chocolate chips. Heat until butter is melted, and chocolate is very soft, but not fully melted. Remove pan from heat, and continue stirring until chocolate is melted and shiny. Spread the chocolate over the peanut butter layer. Refrigerate 1/2 hour. Cut into squares.
I suggest doubling that....seriously.
