Peanut Butter Bars

When I was in College we use to make these all of the time because they were so easy to make. We use to call them "Glucky" bars because they caused that all too sticky sensation on the roof of your mouth. Once the peanut butter part has set you can also roll them into balls and then dip them into the chocolate to make them more like Reese Peanut butter cups. These taste so much like peanut butter cups, so if you are looking for your chocolate peanut butter fix these will most definitely do it for you!

1 1/2 sticks butter or margarine, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons peanut butter

n a medium bowl, mix together the butter or margarine, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners' sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.
In a metal bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the prepared crust. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.
