A good recipe to use for Christmas goodies Very easy to make Edited the recipe to increase the butter as I typed it with too little butter. If your graham cracker mixture is too crumbly add a little more melted butter or decrease the powdered sugar a little bit.
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 1 1⁄4 cups melted butter
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 1⁄3 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 12 ounces milk chocolate chips
- mix together powdered sugar, butter, peanut butter and graham cracker crumbs.
- line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Pat the peanut butter mixture on to the parchment paper.
- melted chocolate chips in microwave 20 sec at time stir and microwave more until melted.
- pour over peanut butter mixture.
- Refrigerate till set and cut into bars.
I put this in a 9x13 pan when I made it late last night. I think I would like it with a bit more peanut butter and a little less sugar. I crushed one package (of the 3 in a box) of graham crackers and it was just about a half cracker too much. Mine did crumble a bit but not too bad, I think that happened when I made these using a different recipe too.
This recipe has potential, but I'm not sure I did it right. The idea of spreading the bottom layer out on a cookie sheet seemed - I don't know - like there had to be a better way. How thick to make it? How big to make it? How big was your cookie sheet? Anyway - so I patted the bottom layer into a 13x9" pan. It was about an inch which I thought was probably too thick, but I didn't bother to transfer it to my 15-x-whatever" larger pan. Is the botton pb layer supposed to be baked? Since the recipe didn't say so, I didn't bake it. But now I'm thinking it probably should have been because it is just so crumbly....when I cut the cookies, whatever part of the bottom layer stuck to the top layer of chocolate is what became the cookie. There was still a good 1/2" of bottom layer left in the pan b/c I think it was just too try - and maybe should have been baked??? The part that actually became a "cookie" was really good - but it's not really attactive or uniform enough to serve to anyone other than my DH and DD. I'm posting a picture just so you can see what I'm talking about and maybe tell me what I did wrong. If I there's anything missing from the recipe, Candle Lover, please update it! :-). I'd love to make this again with different directions.
