Holy Spoons

The gift of hospitality sometimes comes with food.

Peanut Butter Bars

OK, after that dryer lint recipe, I owe you something luscious. This one qualifies…  It was originally in the 30 Day Gourmet cookbook. I altered it slightly in that I like using crunchy peanut butter, not smooth. I’m just that way.

(As I’m typing this, someone walked by me here in the kitchen and commented, “Gee, you haven’t made those in AGES!” OK, OK…)


  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 1 block of graham crackers, crushed)
  • 2 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 cup melter butter
  • 1 cup CRUNCHY peanut butter (OK, you can use smooth. But trust me.)
  • 12 oz chocolate chips (about 2 cups, give or take, because of the people who come by and snitch some.You know who you are…)


  • Grease a 9×13 pan.
  • Mix graham cracker crumbs, confectioner’s sugar, melted butter and peanut butter. Pour into pan, spread out and press into corners.
  • Melt chips and pour over the top.
  • Let chocolate harden (sometimes need to put this in the fridge.)
  • Cut into pieces and eat.


These will freeze well: Cut into pieces and layer them on waxed paper in an air-tight container. They are yummy slightly frozen or thawed. They are decadent on ice cream. Apply directly to hips for fastest results. They don’t keep well unless you bury them under the frozen squash or eggplant…
