I whipped these squares up quick this morning before I left. I thought I'd share, just in case you've left everything until the last minute, including the Christmas dessert. They are no-bake, have minimal ingredients and really do taste just like Reese's Peanut Butter cups. If you don't make them for Christmas, bookmark this page... you'll want to try them at some point.
Reese's Pieces Squares
1 cup peanut butter**
1 1/3 cups icing sugar*
1 3/4 cups graham crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
Combine and press into a 9x13 casserole dish.
1 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cups peanut butter**
Melt the chips and pb together on high in the microwave, checking every 15 seconds or so. It should only take about a minute. Cool slightly and pour on top of base.
Refrigerate 1 1/2 hours and cut into squares.
* If you don't have icing sugar on hand, I have substituted white sugar. It just gives the base a grittier texture.
** Use the cheap peanut butter, NOT the all-natural stuff.
