Peanut Butter Squares

Wow! I'm so flattered that you all want my recipe, thus......

Peanut Butter Squares
2 Cups powdered sugar
1 Cup butter, softened
1 Cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 Cups graham cracker crumbs
1 Cup chopped peanuts (I used a mix of nuts...especially almonds!)
1 package (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 Cup peanut butter

Line square pan, 9x9x2 inches, with aluminum foil. Mix powdered sugar, butter, 1 Cup peanut butter and vanilla in large bowl. Stir in graham cracker crumbs and peanuts. (Mixture will be stiff) Press in pan.

Heat Chocolate chips and 1/4 Cup peanut butter over low heat, stirring frequently, until smooth. Spread over bars. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Remove squares, along with foil, from pan. Fold foil back to cut squares. Refrigerate any remaining squares.
36 squares.

And then I got a whole other pan dirty and melted some white chocolate with a little more peanut butter to drizzle on the top! And now this recipe is mine and not Betty Crock-who's?

And I wanted to quick and tell you guys to take a peek at my friends new blog. It's in my fun sites section below.

Thanks for the recipe Meredith. I just ate another one tonight as I was watching The Biggest Loser. You left the plate here so I just could not resist. I swear I eat more calories during that show than any other time of the week. Anyway....maybe tomorrow I will get back on track! LOL!

ah, I wanted to ask but was scared to. I just hope I don't eat the whole plate at once, they look delicious!

Can I get some other reciepies from you? (I know I didn't spell that right) I want to make some new things but I don't know where to start. I'm not just talking about desserts, but dinners too. I sent out an e-mail a few days ago to 52 different people and didn't get one reply. That's sad if you ask me. Can you help me please?!?!
