2cupsanimal cracker crumbsor vanilla wafers, graham crackers, etc
1 1/2cupscreamy peanut butter
In a mixer or a food processor, combine the first four ingredients until smooth. Spread into a 13x9 baking pan.
For the topping, melt the chocolate and peanut butter together in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir. If not completely melted you can heat in 10 second intervals until smooth. Spread over the top of the peanut butter layer.
Chill dessert in the refrigerator for about an hour, or in the freezer for 15 minutes. Cut into bars and serve.
You can use a hand mixer or even a blender if you don't have a food processor. We like the food processor because it makes for the smoothest mixture.
This recipe uses semi sweet chocolate for the topping. If you want it a big sweeter, and closer to the flavor of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, simply substitute milk chocolate for the semi sweet. I prefer to use baking chocolate, but you can certainly use chocolate chips instead.
