reeses squares

These are yummy, taste just like reese's peanut butter cups, only have 5 ingredients & you don't have to bake them! They are very rich, but extremely addictive.

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (if making your own = 1 sleeve)
1 lb confectioner's sugar (3 to 3 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 cup butter, melted
1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips (I've used semi-sweet & it cuts a bit of the richness down)

1. Combine graham crumbs, sugar and peanut butter and mix well.
2. Blend in melted butter until well combined.
3. Press mixture evenly into a 9 x 13 inch pan.
4. Melt chocolate chips in microwave or in double boiler.
5. Spread over peanut butter mixture.
6. Chill until just set and cut into bars. (these are very hard to cut if the chocolate gets "rock hard".)

I made mine at night & just let them set on the counter.
