Peanut Butter Bars (Kristin's)

A brand new favorite this year. Thank you Kristin E, MOPS Director extraordinaire. 

The kids are swarming and asking, "Can we have the less-than-perfect ones?"  The fact that I've had the powdered sugar since we made Jesus' birthday cake LAST Christmas tells you that baking with "real" refined ingredients is rare around here....but still.....Only FIVE ingredients, no-bake....honestly....the mark of a great recipe. 

1 1/2 C Graham Cracker Crumbs
1 lb Confectioners' sugar (3 - 3 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 C Peanut Butter
1 C Butter, melted
1 (12 oz) bag Milk Chocolate Chips (I used semi-sweet - no artificial stuff)

Combine cracker crumbs, sugar and peanut butter. Mix well. 

Blend in melted butter until completely combined. 

Press mixture evenly into a 9 x 13 inch pan. 

Melt Chocolate chips in microwave or in double boiler. 

Spread over peanut butter mixture. 

Chill until just set and cut into bars (these are VERY hard to cut if the chocolate gets "rock hard".
