If you're like my family, you just can't get enough Peanut Butter Cups...everyone loves them! Here is a recipe that should satisfy that peanut butter sweet tooth!
Step 1: Ingredients
Gather the following ingredients and supplies:
3 cups powdered sugar
1 package crushed graham crackers
2 sticks butter
1/2 cups peanut butter
1/2 package almond bark
Non-stick cooking spray
9X13 baking pan
2 microwaveable mixing bowls
Quart size and Gallon Size Ziploc Bags
Optional--I mixed with a hand mixer, but you can use a stand mixer or mix by hand
Step 2: Layer 1
Put butter in mixing bowl and microwave about 1 minute to soften and start to melt. While you're waiting for the butter to melt, crush the graham crackers. I place them in a quart size ziploc bag and place that in a gallon size bag. Add these to the butter. Next add the powdered sugar and the peanut butter and mix.
Once the peanut mixture is ready, spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray. Dump the peanut mixture in pan. Spray your hands with spray and pat the mixture down evenly.
Step 4: Layer 2
In other mixing bowl, place the almond bark, if you like a lot of chocolate use the whole package, if not you can cut it back to 1/2 or 3/4. Here I used only 1/2 and I ended up using the other 1/2 because we like more of the chocolate. Melt according to the package...usually 1 minute and then stir, and then 15 seconds more, stir, repeat until melted. Smear the melted almond bark over Layer 1. I added a walnut heart for Valentine's Day. You could add any toppings you want.
Step 5: Eat and Enjoy!
This will need to cool at room temperature for just a little while and then it is ready to eat and enjoy! This has become one of our family favorites and doesn't last long! Please let me know what you think.
PS I've included the dark and the light almond bark here...my daughter likes the white the best and my husband likes the dark the best. I can't really tell that much difference at all except I think the light spreads and melts a little easier.
