An easy recipe that I managed to complicate! I didn't have peanut butter chips on hand, so I was going to replace it with peanut butter. When I pulled the peanut butter out of the cabinet, I had about a T. instead of a cup's worth. Onto plan C! I made my own peanut butter out of peanuts, a few squirts of honey, a dollop of canola oil, and using the food processor! Once smooth, I added the 14 oz. sweetened condensed and processed that all together. I also used the food processor to make the graham cracker crumbs (use about a package and half of crackers), poured it into my liquid Pyrex measuring cup, melted butter in the microwave, and then added the butter into the crackers, mixed it together, and then pressed it into the 13x9. Now here's where I went a little crazy...I've had coconut flakes and finely chopped pecans on hand that I have no use for. I sprinkled those on top of the crust, sprinkled 6 oz. of chocolate chips on top of that, and then I plopped the peanut/milk mixture over top of that. I spread the mixture evenly over the top using a rubber spatula and my finger and then I added the other 6 oz. of chocolate chips over top of that. After it cooked, I spread the chocolate chips across the top so there was melted chocolate as the topping. Everyone loved these! Only thing I'd do differently is either bake the crust for a few minutes, like you do with cheesecake, so it holds together better or I would drizzle a little plain sweetened milk over the crust to act like glue
