Two Layer Peanut Butter and Chocolate Bars

These bars just call to the chocolate and peanut butter lover hiding inside of me.  I was forced to taste test them very thoroughly...ehehehehe.

The salt in the crust can be omitted, but the spike of saltiness against all the sweet really does give the bars a kick in the flavor department.

I used semi sweet as my chocolate topper, but milk chocolate or dark chocolate would work just as well.

Two Layer Peanut Butter and Chocolate Bars

2 sleeves of graham crackers ground into crumbs
3/4 cup melted butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp sea salt

Mix together all ingredients and press into a greased 9x13 pan.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Cool.

First Layer:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
12 oz bag of peanut butter and chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Mix together cream cheese and peanut butter.  Pour in sweetened condensed milk and beat until smooth.  Mix in melted chips and blend thoroughly.  Spread mixture on top of graham cracker crust.

Second Layer:
2 1/2 cups dark chocolate peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk (approximately)

In a bowl, heat peanut butter and butter in the microwave until melted.  Stir in powdered sugar.  Add in enough milk to make mixture spreadable.  Spread across top of the first layer in 9x13 pan.

Chocolate Top:
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Melt chips in microwave and spread across the second peanut butter layer.  Chill in fridge until set and cut into squares to serve.
