Peanut Butter S'more Bars

 Does any one else have Halloween candy still laying around?

Usually by this time our house is cleared of any candy (mostly because I am home all day and it is way too tempting to stay out of!).

Not this year, though.  My kids have been hiding it carefully so they can eat it (and so I won't).  Silly kids.  Mom "never" gets into your hidden candy stashes. Heck, she doesn't even know where they are--not!!

And for the record I only get into them to make something super delicious--like these.  And by the way, they didn't even notice all their reese's peanut butter cups were missing.

These bars were a hit.  I made them for some family that was coming into town and they graciously helped us eat all of them.  S'mores are amazing with a reese's peanut butter inside so this was that version just a whole lot more of it.  So yummy!

Peanut Butter S'more Bars

(click here for printable version)

3/4 cup butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/4 cups peanut butter
1 jar marshmallow fluff
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bag mini peanut butter cups

1. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt butter. Mix in graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and peanut butter until completely combined.  Press into the bottom of a 9×13 pyrex (will be pretty soft). Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

2. Remove from fridge and spread entire jar of marshmallow fluff over the graham cracker crust. Melt the chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl (I do it in 30 second increments, on high, until completely smooth). Pour over fluff layer and spread to edges.

3. Coarsely chop peanut butter cups and sprinkle on top of chocolate. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until all the layers are set. Cut and serve. Enjoy!
