"Just like Reese's" Peanut Butter Bars

If you like Reese's Peanut butter cups, you'll love these! They are super easy to make, and I actually had everything in my cupboard already. I left the graham crackers a little chunky for some texture, but you can crumble them up to dust if you want :) I also stuck mine in the freezer, I love my desserts cold! mmmm..... enjoy!
Peanut Butter Layer:
1/2 c. butter

1 3/4 c. powdered sugar

1 c. peanut butter

3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs

Chocolate layer:
1/4 c. butter

1/2 c. milk chocolate chips
*Line an 8×8, 9×9, or 7×11 pan with foil for easy removal of bars later.
Peanut butter layer: On low heat, melt 1/2 c. butter. Remove from heat and stir in confectioner’s sugar. Add peanut butter and graham cracker crumbs, stirring until creamy. Spread mixture evenly into pan. Refrigerate while making chocolate layer. 
Chocolate layer: On low heat, melt butter. Add chocolate chips and stir until chips are nearly melted and very soft. Remove from heat and continue stirring until chocolate is smooth and shiny. Spread over peanut butter layer. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Cut into bars.
Store peanut butter cup bars in refrigerator or freezer.
Makes 16 or more bars
