No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars

It's summertime and we're feeling fine! Although we are melting. Is anybody else melting?? It is just so hot! One can simply not be slaving away in a hot kitchen when the sun is beating down all around you. But you also don't want to go too long without a treat. The solution? No. Bake. Peanut Butter Bars. They are easy, fast, and oh so delicious. They are perfect for a potluck or BBQ. I recommend them chilled with a cold glass of milk. Bon Appetite!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars

1 cup salted butter (melted)
2 cups keebler graham cracker crumbs (yes, they come already in crumbs! no smashing required)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 (12 oz) bag milk chocolate chips

1. Combine melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, sugars, peanut butter and vanilla in bowl. Stir until well combined and creamy. 
2. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 pan.
3. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time until melted, about 1-2 minutes. Pour over peanut mixture and spread with a spatula.
4. Refrigerate at least one hour. Cut and enjoy!
