Peanut Butter Squares

My Mom used to make this when I was a kid and I loved them….still do!  I made some slight changes to create it as a dairy-free dessert but the critics in my world love them!

  • 1 cup non-dairy butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I only use Jiff)
  • almost a cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 and 1/3 cup crushed graham crackers

the directions call for melting of the butter then mix all the ingredients together.  I just threw them all on the stove and mixed right there.  Easier!

Spread them out in a 9×13 pan

  • melt a 12 oz bag of non-dairy chocolate chips

Once melted pour and spread over peanut butter mixture.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Note- learned this a long time ago but use a wooden spoon not a plastic spatula as it will melt quickly when melting chocolate.

If you've never melted chocolate just add chips to a hot pan.  I hold pan on side so they don't burn and constantly stir
