Krista's Peanut Butter Squares

My friend Jenny shared this recipe with me many years ago and it is a family favorite...we also love to makes these to share. Not really sure who Krista is, but I know I like her!

Krista's Peanut Butter Squares

Mix together in a bowl:

3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 pound graham crackers, crushed
1 cup peanut butter
2 sticks of melted butter

Spread in a greased 9" x 13" pan and chill until set. Melt 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave (stirring frequently) and spread over chilled peanut butter mixture. Use the back of a butter knife to score the chocolate into serving-sized squares to make cutting easier and then chill until set.

And if that isn't enough chocolate/peanut butter goodness to make you crazy, try this recipe from Cocoa over at Chocolate on my Cranium. Wowsa.

I would love Krista as a friend as well! I can already tell I am going to LOVE this recipe. Thanks!

Hey I have this recipe...I remember you and I went to Jenny's one day and we all shared recipes. That was fun us 3 sitting at her table copying each other recipe stash!

Sounds like a good recipe for me - quick, easy, and the chocolate/peanut butter mixture is not my favorite, so perfect because I am on a diet! (again!)

I made these for the first time in 1996, Krista saved the day. I was so sick and pregnant and they were the only thing that made me happy. By far one of the BEST recipes to ever grace my cookbook. I'll let Krista know how far this recipe has gone. : D
