Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Super easy!

1 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 bag chocolate chips
4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter

Mix together butter, graham cracker crumbs, poswered sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter. Press into an ungreased 10"x15" cookie or jelly roll pan. Melt chocolate chips with 4 tablespoons peanut butter; mix until smooth and completely incorporated. Spread chocolate over peanut butter mixture and chill at least 1 hour before cutting into bars.

*You can use either chunky or smooth PB for the PB mixture, but smooth has a better texture. I don't recommend chunky for the topping. Also, you can leave the PB out of the melted chocolate, but using it makes the chocolate less brittle when it's cooled, so it cuts into bars more easily.
