This is one of those posts that I really wasn't involved in anything, but the eating...I love these kinds of posts...eating is my favorite part of the process.
The other day one of Michael's coworkers, Shelley (her mother made them) brought them to work with her. Michael was kind enough to bring a me a couple pieces home. The next day he brought home the recipe (for Shelley's Moma P-nut Butter Thang)...then made them this weekend.
This recipe is ridiculously easy! And tastes nearly identical to a Reese's peanut butter cup...Let me tell you these are dangerous...You can't eat just one piece!
It really doesn't get much easier than this...First you mix together graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter, melted butter, and confectioners sugar...
Then press the mixture into a pan...
Top with melted milk chocolate chips...
Refrigerate until the chocolate sets...
Cut into squares...
Giant Peanut Butter Cup
1 & 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 & 1/2 cups peanut butter (Used extra crunchy)
2 sticks butter (1 cup), melted
1- 16 oz box confectioners sugar
1- 12 oz package milk chocolate chips
1 tbs vegetable oil
In a bowl mix the graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter, melted butter, and confectioners sugar. Press the mixture into a greased 9x13-inch pan. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips and oil together. Microwave for 1 minute; stir and microwave in 10 second intervals, stirring after each interval until melted. Pour and spread the chocolate over the peanut butter mixture. Refrigerate until set, once set cut into squares.
