Frozen Peanut Butter Bars

I just made a batch of these today for my hubby. These are so easy to make. Just grab one from the freezer to put in the lunch box or great as an evening snack.

1 cup of butter of margarine
2 cups of creamy peanut butter
2 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
1 3/4 cups of powdered sugar
2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips (I use one full 12 ounce bag of semi-sweet)
1/3 cup of milk

In a large saucepan, melt butter and peanut butter together.
Remove from heat.
Add crumbs and powdered sugar, mixing well.
Spread peanut butter mixture in a jelly roll pan (for thinner bars) or 9x13 pan (for thicker bars). Chill in fridge until firm.
When the peanut butter layer is firm melt chocolate chips with milk over low heat.
Spread over chilled peanut butter mixture. Chill again until firm.

Freezing Directions: Cut into serving size pieces. Wrap individually in sandwich bags and then place in a one gallon freezer ziplock bag. Eat straight from the freezer or thaw slightly.
