Peanut Butter Bliss Bars

Ok so I made up the name for these things.. and it is kind of a lame name... but they are awesome and truly blissful haha! I first tried these back in college when my roommate Tiff's mom made them for us. They are the most addictive and delicious treats. They kind of taste like a Reese's peanut butter cup only better. However they are extremely heavy and you can't eat more than a small piece. The pieces pictured above are even borderline too much. Don't believe me? Try it. I made these for my coworkers and I am so thankfully they won't be hanging out in our house because they are also quite sinful.

The recipe originated from Allrecipes.

2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar

1- In a medium bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, confectioners' sugar, peanut butter and melted butter. Press firmly into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Take a sheet of wax paper and tightly press it over the peanut butter mixture, pressing down to even out the mixture. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or more. Remove wax paper.

2-Melt chocolate chips over a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring occasionally. Spread melted chocolate over the crumb crust. Allow to chill completely, then slice into pieces.
