Passover: Chocolate Peanut Butter Matzo Squares

Last weekend I made these chocolate peanut butter squares and they were amazing…we ate every last one of them.  For passover, my friend Karen suggested I switch out the graham cracker crumbs for matzo.  Done…and still amazing! 

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 cup of matzo meal (approx 3 sheets processed)
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 the matzo meal 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!
