    Ingredients

    • 1 bag Kettle Brand chips
    • 1 c peanut butter
    • 1 1/2 c powdered sugar
    • 12 Tbsp butter melted
    • 1 1/2 c milk chocolate chips
    • 1/4 c peanut butter regular, not natural

    Instructions

    1. Using a food processor or a tightly sealed bag and mallet, crush chips and pour into a large mixing bowl.
    2. Mix 1 c peanut butter, powdered sugar and butter into the crushed chips. Pour into 9x9" pan. I line mine with parchment paper, but they come out easily, even when ungreased.
    3. Combine chocolate chips and ¼ c peanut butter. Microwave in 15 second intervals until smooth. Pour over the chip mixture, using a spatula to smooth.
    4. Refrigerate at least 2 hours and serve chilled.

    Recipe Notes

    You can cut butter down to 8 Tbsp if you wish.

    Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
