"But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." Philipians 3:13b,14

Homemade Peanut Butter Cups (And I wonder why I'm not skinny.....)

These are fabulous.

Do you have a teen aged boy in your house? I do. Here's what you do. Make these. Let him eat a whole bunch. Wait for the love.

.......it will come.

Warning: I cannot be responsible for the weight gain that will surely commence in your home when you make these. You must bear the burden for that yourself.

All you need:
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups chocolate chip
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Mix the butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter together in a medium bowl, until well combined:

DANGER!!!!! At this point, do not, FOR ANY REASON, take a taste. Otherwise you'll eat the whole thing. Use self control.

Spread this into an ungreased 9X13 pan:

Then stick the chocolate chips and 1/4 cup peanut butter into a small, microwave safe bowl, and microwave for 1 minute, then stir until smooth and combined:

Spread on top of the peanut butter mixture:

Then chill in the fridge for an hour. Cut into bars:

I will give you 3 guesses as to who took a bite out of the bottom bar. The first two don't count.....

Make these and hide in the closet with the whole pan and a gallon of milk.

Or give them to your family. It's up to you.

I got this recipe from http://www.allrecipes.com/


  1. There is a candy, called Buckeyes, very similar to this recipe, that I have never made, because I would eat the whole batch, and never tell anyone.

    You are killing me.

  2. They're actualy awful. Don't worry you're not missing anything. ;)

  3. Fortunately, I can't get chocolate chips or graham crackers here! ;)

  4. Jenny, you are a lucky, lucky woman..... :)
