Celebrate National Chocolate Chip Day

15 May

Today is National Chocolate Chip Day (#nationalchocolatechipday).  To celebrate … why not make something yummy with a bag of chocolate chips?  Of course you could make chocolate chip cookies, chocolate chip pancakes or chocolate chip waffles.  But I have a family recipe that’s a HUGE hit with anyone who tries it.  It’s my Grandma’s Peanut Butter Bar recipe.  This recipe was handed down to me years ago and has been a favorite ever since.  People always ask me “Are you bringing your peanut butter bars?”  I could probably make them in my sleep (although I’d rather not).  If you make them, let me know how everyone liked (or LOVED) them!

75648_977Dorothy Congdon’s Peanut Butter Bars

3 c. graham cracker crumbs

1 stick butter, melted

2 c. powdered sugar

18 oz. peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)

Frosting:

1 (12 oz) pkg. milk chocolate chips

1 stick butter, melted

Mix graham cracker crumbs, butter, powdered sugar and peanut butter in a bowl until moist.  Press into a 9 x 13 inch pan.  Heat butter and chocolate chips until melted.  Pour on top and smooth with a knife.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Cut into squares and serve.  *You can substitute margarine for butter and use semi-sweet chocolate chips if you prefer.

Enjoy!
