Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars.

Long time, no post.  I blame it on the pregnancy.  Although I did suddenly get the urge to have the baby's room painted (thanks mom & cousin!!)  and I did make a pan of lasagna last week for us and one pan for a friend.  Things might be turning.  Might.

I hope this dangerously delicious and simple bar recipe makes up for my absence.  My sister made these (thanks to my well supplied pantry) and dropped a few off.  Good thing she didn't bring anymore.  Even better thing I didn't make them myself.  They.are.that.good.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars.
(Recipe from Heidi)
1 1/2 cup chocolate graham crackers (crushed)
2 sticks of butter (melted and kept seperate)
2 1/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 cups powdered sugar
dash of vanilla
1 bag chocolate chips (melted)

Combine graham crackers and 1 stick of butter.  Press onto the bottom of a 9x13 pan.  Combine remaining stick of butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar.  Slowly beat in powdered sugar and vanilla.  Spread over crust.  Refrigerate or freeze to firm up.  Top evenly with melted chocolate chips and return to refrigerator or freezer to harden chocolate.  Cut and divulge.

These may be difficult to cut.  The chocolate topping may crack.  The peanut butter filling may want to sneak out the sides.  Do not let this stop you from making and serving them!!
