Treats For Their Lunchbox

Yesterday was Back to School for us.
Although the girls were excited to go, I was a little sad to send them back.
We had such a fantastic summer together!
I already miss 'em hanging out with me...

Now, as I try to get back in the swing of things, besides making my hubby's lunch, 
I have theirs to make again too.
Since everyone in my family is big on homemade treats, I try to keep them satisfied.
My mom has used this Peanut Butter Bar recipe FOREVER - one of my family's favorite.
They're pretty much a homemade version of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.
 Try 'em, I know you'll love 'em
and I bet you can't, just eat one...

Peanut Butter Bars
2 cubes (1 Cup) butter (melted)
1 1/2 C peanut butter
2 packages graham crackers (crushed)
1 pound powdered sugar
1 package chocolate chips (melted)

Mix melted butter, peanut butter, graham crackers, and powdered sugar.  Flatten mixture in buttered
 9 x 13 pan.
Spread melted chocolate chips over top.  Refrigerate for 20 min.  Cut into bars.
