day 20: {incredibles}

well, their name pretty much says it all.  these are basically incredible.  and they’re easy.  they are kind of like a glorified peanut butter graham cracker with chocolate.

so how could you go wrong?

Incredibles

what you’ll need:

¾ cup melted butter

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1 12-ounce jar peanut butter

2 cups powdered sugar

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

instructions:

1. pour melted butter over graham cracker crumbs and mix well.

2. add peanut butter and powered sugar and mix well.

{if you heat the peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds it’s much easier to mix}

3. spread evenly into bottom of greased 9×13 inch pan.

4. in microwave heat chocolate chips for 30 second intervals on 50% power.

5. pour over top of graham cracker mix.

6. chill for 1 hour or until firm.

enjoy!

day 17: {mad hatters}

if i said we only made these at Christmas i’d be lying.  we made these a lot growing up.  they’re easy and yummy and you don’t even have to bake them!  some recipes call for peanut butter, but this recipe doesn’t.  however, you can add it if you like.   personally i like them with just plain cocoa.
