It's National Peanut Butter Day: Peanut Butter Bars

Anything with peanut butter is my all-time favorite dessert.  Peanut butter and chocolate, peanut butter and peanut butter.  It's all good.  That's why we should all celebrate National Peanut Butter Day.  Everyday should be National Peanut Butter Day.  These bars go together very quickly, and taste just like our  favorite peanut butter and chocolate candy.  A lady at our church used to bring them to church supper on Wednesday nights.  That's gotta be a sin to bring something this devilishly good to a church supper!
Peanut Butter Bars!  I'm so excited!
Melt margarine and peanut butter together.

Mix in powdered sugar

Then mix in graham cracker crumbs
Press into greased jelly roll pan.
Mixture will be about the
consistency of cookie dough.
Melt chocolate chips
Spread melted chocolate over
peanut butter mixture and
chill before cutting into bars.
Get out your best dishes,
it's a special occasion!
Grab a cold Diet Coke to
enjoy along side your Peanut Butter Bars
and celebrate National Peanut Butter Day!

Peanut Butter Bars
2 sticks margarine
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 (16 ounce) box powdered sugar
1 (12 ounce) package milk chocolate chips

Melt together margarine and peanut butter.  Mix in powdered sugar, then graham cracker crumbs.  Press into a greased jelly roll pan.  Melt chocolate chips in the microwave and spread over the mixture.  Chill before cutting into squares.  Note:  I normally used unsalted butter in all of my cooking unless otherwise specified.  I used margarine in this recipe, just as the lady from my church used to.

Prep Time:  Approximately 15 minutes     Cook Time:  0--needs to chill
