Peanut Butter Bars

Simply Sweet is living up to it's name here! These things are definitely sweet, and definitely good! But let me warn you, you might want to have a glass of milk nearby :)

Who doesn't love peanut butter? And what goes better with peanut butter than chocolate...I mean, really? I don't have much to say about these things other than you should try them! Trust me, they're good.

1/2 cup margarine or butter
1 cup peanut butter
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar (sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less)
1 cup chocolate chips


Place the chocolate chips in a double boiler and begin to melt. 

Combine the butter and peanut butter in a pot and melt together. Once the peanut butter and butter are melted, add the powdered sugar a little at a time (Each recipe will require a different amount of powdered sugar. You just want to add enough so that it's firm and can be pressed into the bottom of a pan. If you add too much sugar it will take away from the peanut butter taste). 

Press the peanut butter mixture in the bottom of an 8x8 pan. 
(I used a bigger pan because I like mine thinner). 

Spread the melted chocolate chips over the top. 

Put in the refrigerator or freezer for a few hours or overnight (You want the bars to come out clean. 
I like leaving them in the freezer overnight and eating them cold).
