Our baby Lydia slept 6 consecutive hours last night!! Remember those days? Her mommy and daddy have been sleep deprived so this is VERY good news! After receiving a grandmother book as a gift when we had our first granddaughter, I decided that I couldn’t do one and not for the others. For those of you who aren’t familiar with a grandmother books, its sort of like a baby book only this book wants pictures and narrative about the grandmother’s childhood, its sort of a history book. The trouble is I have 9 of them to do. There is a lot of writing, a place for a family tree how you met grandpa, your school days and etc. I have four done and now have decided that I should try to complete all of them. After all who knows what the future will bring at my age! So that is my spring project until the weather gets warm enough to work in the flowers! Today I am sharing a simple bar recipe for you. I actually think I received the recipe from a school my granddaughter Samantha was attending in Mankato, years ago!
Chocolate Peanut butter bars
1 pkg. of a 3 pack box of graham crackers
1 cup peanut butter
2 sticks butter (no substitutes), softened
3 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. butter, 3 Tbsp. brown sugar,
3 Tbsp. milk. 1 cup chocolate chips, 1 tsp. vanilla
In food processor fitted with a steel blade, grind graham crackers into crumbs, then add remaining ingredients and process until ball forms. Turn crust into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan, smooth with spatula until evened out. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. In medium saucepan stir together the topping ingredients over low heat until the chocolate is melted. Pour over warm crust. Chill until firm then cut into squares. Enjoy!
Have a great week!
