Easy peasy chocolate bars with a creamy chocolate topping. Kind of like a buckeye ball without all the work!

Makes about 24

1 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons peanut butter

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together butter or margarine, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13" baking pan.

In the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, melt the chocolate chips with the 4 tablespoons peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread on top of the mixture in the baking pan.

Refrigerate for about 1 hour before cutting into bars.

Note: Yield depends on how big or small you cut the bars/squares. Photo by jamieanne under Creative Commons license. Check out her other great photography and recipes at The Sweetest Kitchen.

  A cookie baker in Toledo, Oh  Feb 9, 2014
Would make this again.
So similar to Buckeye Balls but the graham crackers make a big difference. Also, less time consuming than balls. 5 stars

Would make this again.
very good, but I did do a little different, instead of 1 c peanut butter, I actually melted the margarine and 2 c peanut butter chips over stove cooled a bit then added conf sugar and graham crackers, seemed to form better and easier to cut 5 stars

Would make this again.
These are wonderful, but for a variation, after you add the melted chocolate, try rough chopping some Reese's pieces and sprinkling on top. (pretty for Thanksgiving) Also is good with finely chopped salted peanuts or walnuts. 5 stars
