No Bake Cookies you can make with the kids!

We've already given you a bunch of recipes, but we realized we may have neglected to address the fact that often, the kids want to help. So, we've selected a recipe that the kids can absolutely help with! It's a simple no bake option that's sure to get the whole family involved.

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Makes about 24
1 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons peanut butter
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together butter or margarine, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13" baking pan.

In the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, melt the chocolate chips with the 4 tablespoons peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread on top of the mixture in the baking pan.

Refrigerate for about 1 hour before cutting into bars.
Note: Yield depends on how big or small you cut the bars/squares.
