Chocolate peanut butter Incredibles

These chocolate peanut butter bars are, as the name suggests, incredible.

Food forum

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is: I will always eat chocolate and peanut butter desserts. These Incredibles, submitted by reader Shelly Zielinski, are no exception.

“My mom found this in the Detroit News in the late 1970s,” she wrote. “Now my son loves it.”

The recipe is super easy too. The hardest part is waiting for the bars to set in the fridge.

Incredibles

1 cup melted butter

2 ⅔ cups graham cracker crumbs

1 16-ounce jar peanut butter (do not use natural)

2 ⅔ cups confectioners sugar

1 12-ounce bag chocolate chips, melted

Combine butter and graham cracker crumbs. Beat in peanut butter and confectioners sugar until combined. Spread mixture over bottom of a 9×13 inch pan.

Frost with melted chocolate. Chill to harden. Before chocolate is completely set, cut into bars.

Note: The bars don’t hold their shape if natural peanut butter is used.
