  1. In a medium bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, confectioners' sugar, peanut butter and melted butter. Press firmly into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Melt chocolate chips over a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring occasionally. Spread melted chocolate over the crumb crust. Chill for about 5 minutes, then cut into bars before the chocolate is completely set, then chill until ready to serve.

These are absolutely delicious. Originally I made them for dessert tonight, but when they came out I had to have a little taste...WOW. I made the mistake of cutting them right out of the fridg...

I thought this tasted great, just like the PB cups. I would recommend milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet. Also, I refridgerated the bars for an hour, then tried to cut them. Bad mistake. The c...

These are addictive, even with my lowering fat changes! I used half the margarine, just 2 cups of sugar, and 1 cup milk chocolate chips. The excess sugar and fat seems unnecessary, as it is pl...

Based on other reviews I cut the butter down to 3/4 cup and it was plenty. Next time I would increase the amount of chocolate and use a bigger tin - I found the base was too thick. Great taste...
