This recipe tastes just like the peanut butter cups you buy in the store! My sister halved the recipe using a smaller pan and it worked fine. This is also great for cooking with kids. It's a wonderful dessert to make in the summer, when you don't want to heat the kitchen.
Peanut Butter Cups
2 sticks butter, melted (please don't use margarine)
2 1/2 cups graham crackers, finely crushed. I used my food processor and a special bammer: Combine in mixing bowl.
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 t. vanilla
Stir until combined. Spread into a 9 X 13 pan.
Melt 6 oz. milk chocolate chips (I used the microwave a few seconds at a time, stirring each time). I also added a few tablespoons of half and half to make it creamier.
Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter layer. Chill. Before cutting into bars let it sit on the counter a few minutes.
After this I came to the computer to download the pictures. I *thought* he was safe b.c he was licking the chocolate off the bowl. I *should* have immediately gone into the kitchen when I heard him playing with the hand mixer. But I didn't. Until, I heard, "ow! OW! OWIE!"
