Summer Party Favorite: Peanut Butter Bars

10 Jul

This weekend I have two parties to attend and was asked to bring a dessert.  When it’s summer, I always fall back on my Grandma’s Peanut Butter Bars.  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).  I thought I’d share the recipe so you, too, can be the hit at your next Summer BBQ or get together.  If you make them, let me know how everyone liked (or LOVED) them!

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!

Making a Move this Summer

13 Jun

Summer is a popular time to sell and buy a new home.  Most people feel that summer is the best time to move as the weather is ideal.  If you have children, summer is a great time to move as their school year has ended and they can settle in before they start their new school year in the fall.  It’s important to let family and friends know of your move so they can update their records for future correspondence.  The Stationery Studio has three great solutions to make it easy to let everyone know of your new address:
