Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
I wanted to share an awesome recipe I came across and tried tonight. The Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars are delicious! Also, they are super easy, require no baking, and can be pulled together with ingredients you always have on hand. You just need butter, peanut butter, chocolate chips, graham crackers, and powdered sugar! I took these to a baby shower tonight and they were a big hit. They taste basically like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Yum!
The only change I made (taken from the comments on Allrecipes) was to add a heaping spoonful of both shortening and peanut butter while melting the chocolate, so that the chocolate doesn't crack so much when you're cutting and serving it. It worked well, so I would definitely recommend making that change.

PS: This ain't health food. But enjoy. :)
And one more thing: Why didn't anyone tell me I still had a Happy New Year background on here? That's like letting me walk around with baby spit-up in my hair!
