For those who read my blog but not: http://busyfriendsrecipeswap.blogspot.com/,
****this is where we post yummy recipes!*****

I remember eating these at our school!! Besides the chili & cinnamon rolls, this was the best!

Here is a delicious recipe for Peanut Butter Candy from Brad's wife. (from Z103)
If you don't know, Peanut Butter Candy is the dessert that school cafeterias serve where it's like an inch of peanut butter goodness topped with a small layer of chocolate ecstasy.


Peanut Butter Candy

2 C. creamy peanut butter

8 T. butter; softened

2 3/4 C. powdered sugar

6 C. rice krispies; crushed

1/2 bag of Chocolate Chips (melted)

*Mix butter and peanut butter together.

Mix powdered sugar and rice krispies together.

Combine mixtures.

Press into 8x8 ungreased pan.

Melt half bag of chocolate chips and pour over peanut butter mixture.

Place in fridge to harden chocolate.

*How do you melt chocolate?

Here are 3 different ways to do it. Just be careful, cuz if you burn the chocolate, it stinks up your place, and it makes little children and me cry.

Method 1

Place the chips in a microwaveable bowl just big enough to hold them.

Place in microwave on low heat setting and microwave in 30-second increments.

Stir after each 30 seconds to ensure all chips melt.

Method 2

Place water in the bottom of a double boiler and chips in the top.

Melt the chips over medium heat, stirring them with a wooden spoon until just melted.

Method 3

Place the chips in a small ovenproof casserole or metal mixing bowl.

Heat oven or toaster oven to warm (150 to 200 degrees F).

Using the potholder, check the casserole and stir the chips every 3 minutes until they are melted.

Oh Ang, I just about gagged when I saw that picture. I ate way too many of those peanut butter squares as a kid in grade school apparently. Too funny!
