  • 1/3 cup salted butter melted
  • 2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs (4 full sheets)
  • 2/3 cup (80g) powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup (85g) creamy peanut butter (not natural peanut butter)

Chocolate Layer

  • 1/2 cup (3oz) good-quality semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and peanut butter. Stir with a spoon until well mixed. Turn out into an ungreased 7x5-inch dish and smooth out. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes.

  2. In a small, microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate and peanut butter. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. If necessary, microwave for an additional 15 seconds and stir, repeating until chocolate is melted and smooth.
