DIRECTIONS

  • With a pastry blender, cut the peanut butter, 1/2 cup margarine and powdered sugar together by hand DO NOT USE A MIXER OR IT WILL BE TO CREAMY; the mixture may need to be "kneaded by hand".
  • Line a 13x9x2 inch pan with foil, spread the mixture with slightly buttered hands into prepared pan.
  • In top of double boiler over boiling water, add 1 tablespoon melted margarine and 12 oz chocolate chips taking care not to get water into the mix.
  • Stir constantly until melted, mixture will be glossy.
  • Spread immediately over peanut butter mixture.
  • Allow to cool and harden slightly, cut into squares.
  • DH suggested using a pizza cutter to cut these into squares and it works great!
  • After these are cut and the chocolate has set, I store these covered in a tupperware container.
