Treat Tuesday #53...

Treat Tuesday - Reeses Peanut Butter No Bake Bars

*When I found this recipe via Facebook, I was thrilled!

*My wife was also thrilled because even I could bake these.

*I absolutely love Reeses Peanut Butter so they are a new favorite for myself and the family.


*1 cup salted butter (melted)
*2 cups graham cracker crumbs
*1/4 cup brown sugar
*1 3/4 cup powdered sugar
*1 cup peanut butter
*1/2 tsp. vanilla
*1 (11 oz) bag milk chocolate chips

1. Combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips in a medium sized bowl. Stir until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
2. Pour peanut butter mixture into a 9 x 13 pan.
3. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave (at 50% power) for 1-2 minutes. Stir chocolate and pour over the peanut butter mixture. Spread chocolate with a spatula. To even out chocolate, tap pan on the counter.
4. Refrigerate bars for one hour. Cut while bars are still cool. Enjoy!
