Even though it doesn't get very hot in the Seattle area in the summer, it still heats up my house when I turn on the oven. And without an air conditioner, I can't cool it off. I have really been trying not to use the oven on warm days. These are just the kind of summer dessert that I can make and they really couldn't be any easier.
1 cup butter or margarine, melted2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter
1. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter or margarine, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.
2. In a metal bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the prepared crust. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.
