Peanut Butter Bars

This has become my familys favorite treat.  It is easy and no baking required.  I keep them in the fridge and they seem to just get better with a little time.....that is if they last that long.  I made these for my son's team dinner this week and then he came home and informed me that they had requested for him to bring a salad.  The rest of the family was happy with that decision. 

Peanut Butter Bars
3 cups Rice Krispies (crush a bit)
4 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup peanut butter

Mix all ingredients together.  Press into a greased 9x13 pan.  Chill 1 hour or until firm.

Top with:
1 (12oz package) chocolate chips
2 Tbs oil
Place in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir and continue to microwave for 15 second intervals until chocolate is melted.  Spread over the top of the peanut butter layer and return to the fridge until chocolate hardens.

*The only issue I have had with these is keeping the chocolate layer on the top when cutting them.  I found adding the little bit of oil helps and cutting them when the chocolate hardens before they get too cold.
