Reeses Peanut Butter Squares

The kids wanted to cook and I had a few odd and end things around the kitchen(trying to use up before grocery shopping again). Found this and am so glad we tried it! I've never had anything as close to a Reeses pb cup! We had the 60% cacao chips so I used those and natural peanut butter also worked just fine. I'm sending most for the cub scout bake sale but we will definitely be making these again!
Corrine showed Justin how to get it out of the bowl.
Justin showed Corrine a MUCH better way of eating from the bowl.

Reeses PB Bars
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 lb confectioners' sugar(3 to 3 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 cup butter, melted
1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips
Combine graham crumbs, sugar and peanut butter and mix well. Blend in melted butter until well combined. Press mixture evenly into a 9 x 13 inch pan.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave or in double boiler. Spread over peanut butter mixture. Chill until just set and cut into bars (these are very hard to cut if the chocolate gets "rock hard".
