Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

I’ve been eyeing this recipe for awhile now and looking for the time I wanted to execute it.  Even better, the idea of mixing together a dessert in a food processor was too exciting to not try and do, so one weekend morning I decided to take the plunge.  This is another fall recipe I’ve pulled from the Savoring the Seasons cookbook that I love so much.

The bar flavor turned out really tasty.  I think presentation has a little to be desired, but I’m sure that will improve on the second or third time around making them.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Crust
1/3 lb graham crackers
1 c peanut butter
2 sticks butter
3 c powdered sugar

Topping
3 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp brown sugar
3 Tbsp milk
1 c chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

In a food processor fitted with a steel blade, grind the graham crackers into crumbs; then add the remaining ingredients and process until a ball of dough forms.  Turn the crust into a 9×13 inch pan and spread it smooth with a spatula.  Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 5 to 10 minutes.

In a medium saucepan, stir together the ingredients for the topping over low heat until the chocolate is melted.  Pour this chocolate over the crust while it is still warm, then chill and, when firm, cut into squares.
