My fiancé and I are road-tripping back across the country tomorrow - to get MARRIED! So, I've been gathering food and decided to bake some treats as well. The chocolate chip cookies look good, but I needed something else. (Partly because I'm a stress eater.)
I found this recipe, and not only does it involve my favorite ingredient EVER - peanut butter, but there's no cooking involved! And, it's kind of low sugar. I split the original recipe in half and made it a little more diabetic friendly.
2 cups of crushed graham crackers (about one sleeve)
A bag of chocolate chips (unless you want a thinner chocolate layer)
1 stick of butter (or 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut flakes (completely optional)
Combine the crushed graham crackers with the peanut butter and pour in your melted butte (this is where I also poured in the coconut - for a little extra flavor and sweetness). Mix it all together until it looks like the peanut buttery goodness of a Reese's. I made this in an 8x6 pan (the size used for making bread and such). Spread the "crust" evenly across the pan. I melted the chocolate chips on the stove until it became runny enough to spread over the crust. Chill for about one hour and enjoy!
