Yummy Peanut Butter Bars
1/2 cup margarine
2 cups peanut butter
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 cup brown sugar
1 lb powdered sugar
2 cups chocolate chips
3 Tbsp margarine
Melt 1/2 cup margarine and peanut butter in a large saucepan. Stir in vanilla and brown sugar. Then stir in powdered sugar. Mixture will be thick.
Press mixture into a 9×13 pan and place in the refrigerator – the chocolate will spread easier if the peanut butter layer is cool.
Place chocolate chips and 3 Tbsp margarine in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on High for 30 seconds, remove and stir. Continue to microwave for 10 seconds at a time as needed to melt the chocolate.
Spread melted chocolate over peanut butter mixture. You can return the pan to the refrigerator to cool the chocolate or let it cool at room temperature.
This is a great after school treat for the kids – or anytime your sweet tooth is calling to you. 😉
