Aunt Pat’s Peanut Butter Candy

When I was in college, I lost my Aunt Pat to breast cancer. With all of the breast cancer awareness campaigns going on this month, I’ve been thinking a lot about her.

This recipe is, I believe, the only one I have that she passed on to me. I’m not sure where she originally got the recipe, but I do remember her making this several times when we would visit because we loved it so much. I’ve used it as a go-to recipe several times because it’s quick and easy – and everyone always loves it.

Aunt Pat’s Peanut Butter Candy

1 C. Peanut Butter
1 1/2 Sticks of Softened Margarine
1 3/4 C. Graham Cracker Crumbs
2/3 C. Confectioners Sugar
2 C. Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 C. Milk Chocolate Chips

Mix together peanut butter, margarine, graham cracker crumbs and sugar until combined. Press into a 9″x13″ pan.

Melt together the chocolate chips and spread over the peanut butter mixture.

Cover and refridgerate until chocolate is set. Cut into squares and serve chilled.
