This is one of my favorite candies to make. My husband who despises real "Reeses" and can't stand peanut butter and chocolate together actually loves these too. They are soooo good.
2 sticks margarine 1/3 box of graham crackers
1 lb. powdered sugar 1 c. peanut butter
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
First melt the margarine in the microwave.
Open up the box of graham crackers and remove one package from the box.
Crush up the package of graham cracker into really small crumbs. I usually do this before opening up the plastic. Pour the crushed package into the bowl of melted margarine.
Now get the peanut butter and measure out 1 cup and add it to the mixture.
I used creamy peanut butter this time but it is equally as good with crunchy peanut butter.
Now stir in the powdered sugar. Here is what it looked like after adding it in.
But since we have to pat it down by hand, we added a bit more until it looked like this:
Now, get out a cookie sheet and pour the mixture into it. Wash and dry your hands and begin patting it down firmly like so....
My husband patting it down...
In a clean and DRY bowl, pour in the chocolate chips.
Melt the chips in the microwave in 30 second bursts for the first minute and then for 15 second intervals. Stir in between times with a clean and DRY spoon. Once they are all melted, pour on top of the graham cracker mixture and smooth it out with a spatula.
Set it in the refrigerator or freezer to harden. We stick ours in the freezer for 30 minutes because it hardens faster which means we can eat it sooner. :-) Once the top has harden, cut into serving pieces and enjoy.
The finished product.
Any pieces not eaten right away, place in the refrigerator to enjoy later.
