Better Than Reeses

Mr. Perfect loves peanut butter and chocolate. He's been hinting for the last two days that he wants me to make some 'Better Than Reeses' squares. Lucky for him today is Sunday and I usually make a dessert on Sunday. I am also out of flour so his request works for me because there's no flour in these babies. I've seen many different variations of this recipe; this is what works best for me.

What you need:
  • 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1  1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

What you do:
Mix together graham cracker crumbs, sugar and peanut butter.







 
Blend in melted butter until well combined.

Press mixture evenly into a wax paper lined pan. (A larger pan will make thin squares, a smaller pan will make thick squares.)

Melt chocolate chips in 30 second increments in the microwave. (Mine took 1 minute and 30 seconds to melt.)

Spread chocolate over peanut butter mixture.

*TIP* Sprinkle some peanuts on top if you'd like.

Chill until just set and cut into squares.

Totally better than a Reeses!

 Mr.Perfect really liked the addition of salty peanuts.

  21. obviously great as is but would also be good with the addition of rice krispies in the chocolate (sprinkled on top of the peanut butter mixture prior to pouring the chocolate over...
