Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Sorry I haven't posted anything since September! I am back! We welcomed our third child to our family on November 17th so life has been a little busy!

These are great for Christmas Plates!

1 cup of butter (2 sticks)
1 cup of peanut butter
2 cups Powdered Sugar
1 3/4 Cups Crushed Graham Crackers ( I have found that if you leave the sleave of graham crackers closed and then take your rolling pin and smash the whole package, it is enough for the recipe and you don't have a mess to clean up after. Then you just open up an end and pour the smashed graham crackers in.)
2 cups of chocolate chips

Heat the butter and the peanut butter in a sauce pan until melted together. Add the powdered sugar and the graham crackers to the mixture and mix until it is all combined. Pour this mixture in to a 9X13 pan and push it down in the pan In a double boiler melt the chocolate chips and then spread the melted chocolate over the top of the peanut butter mixture and place in the fridge to set. When it is set cut and serve. This is a very rich treat so don't make the pieces you cut large or it will be too much. Enjoy! I dare you not to at least want to eat the whole pan of them yourself....too tempting!!! :)
