Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

I am not even kidding!  I found this recipe in an old jewish vegetarian cookbook (I am practicing for passover) and made it vegan!  Seriously…decadent and delicious!

1 1/4 cup organic natural peanut butter (room temperature)
4 tablespoons Earth Balance (1/2 stick, softened)
1 cup vegan powdered sugar, sifted
1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
1 cup vegan chocolate chips

Sift the powdered sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine the peanut butter and Earth Balance.  Use a hand mixer and if it gets to tough, use your hands.  Work the powdered sugar in 1/2 a cup at a time.  When that is thoroughly combined,  add all of the graham cracker crumbs and 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips.  Combine well.  Lightly grease a small square pan (mine is a 9×9 baking pan) and set the mixture in by really pressing it down firmly so it is even.

Melt together 1/4 cup of the peanut butter and the other 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips.  Pour it over the top of the crust and spread it out evenly.  Place in the refrigerator to set (at least an hour.)

Cut into squares and serve!  Enjoy!
