Sometimes Things Taste Better Than They Look! Peanut Butter Bars

I am a sucker for peanut butter recipes that say they are going to taste like my Kryptonite, Reese's peanut butter cups. I tried this recipe today. Although it tastes pretty good, the appearance was a little iffy. I am thinking of using magic coat for the topping next time. Flavor wise, the peanut center tastes pretty close.
Peanut Butter Bars

1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 cup confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup butter melted
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Melt the butter in the microwave and add to the peanut butter, confectioners sugar, and graham cracker crumbs. Add to a 9x13 pan that has been sprayed with PAM or buttered. Smooth the peanut butter evenly over the pan.

 Melt chocolate chips in the microwave starting at 30 second intervals. Stir and repeat until the chips are melted. I prefer the double boiler method which is taking a glass bowl and placing it over a pot of boiling water. That way you can prevent burning of the chocolate. Just make sure the glass container isn't touching the water.

Lastly, spread the chocolate over the peanut butter mixture. Cool in the fridge. Cut into bars. I found the chocolate was very hard to cut through. This is why I am thinking of using Magic chocolate topping found in the ice cream section. Cut into small pieces because it's very rich.
