Nobody better lay a finger...

Need to gain ten pounds instantly? Make these. You won't be able to stop eating until the pan is clean and PRESTO, your hips and thighs will magnify!

Peanut Butter Cup Bars

1 cup butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, remove from heat and add graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter, and powdered sugar. Smooth into 13x9 inch pan. Refrigerate (or freeze if in hurry) until topping. Melt chocolate chips in favorite method (I usually do 1 minute in the microwave, followed by stirring and heating for 10 seconds until melted, just like the package says, instead of double boiling so I don't have to worry about the whole steam/curdling issue). Pour over cooled peanut butter mixture and cool for at least 30 minutes in refrigerator before cutting.

These bad boys are one of my favorite snacks because they taste just like Reese's peanut butter cups! I made them for camping Memorial Day weekend. I needed something to make it feel just like old times when the three families would go camping together. Apparently massive amounts of sugar hit the spot.

Now if only a red velvet or rum cake could magically appear during "happy hour" on Sunday it would REALLY be traditional camping.
