It’s Memorial Day weekend here in the U.S.
This is a holiday that is meant to memorialize all those who have served in our military and given their lives and time for the protection of our nation. Somehow this traditionally translates into back yard barbeques and family parties. I happen to be attending such a party this weekend and I wanted to bring a dish to share but I wasn’t sure what to make. I went and dug into that fantastic new (old) recipe box from my Great-Great-Aunt Tonie and pulled out this delicious recipe for Peanut Butter Bars!
I am not typically a sweets person, but let me tell you, this dish is beyond addictive! This couldn’t be an easier snack to make. You use one large bowl to both melt and mix the ingredients together, pour it into a dish and refrigerate. Simple simple simple. I guess that makes it a no-bake recipe too! I don’t know how old this recipe is, but truely some of the oldies are the goodies!!
Directions:1. In a large bowl, melt your butter and then mix in crushed graham crackers, powdered sugar, and peanut butter.
2. Grease a large 13 x 9 casserole pan and pour your mixture into it. Use the back of a spoon and even the mixture out over the entire bottom of the pan.
3. Back in that original bowl, melt your chocolate chips and then pour them over the top of your peanut butter mixture in the casserole dish. Spread it out so that it is evenly covering the peanut butter. Cover the dish with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate overnight.
4. The next morning let the dish set out at room temperature for a little while before cutting the bars into the dish. This recipe makes approximately 40 bars.
