  • 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


  • Using a food processor or a tightly sealed bag and mallet, crush chips and pour into a large mixing bowl.
  • 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.
  • Combine chocolate chips and ΒΌ c peanut butter. Microwave in 15 second intervals until smooth. Pour over the chip mixture, using a spatula to smooth.
  • Refrigerate at least 2 hours and serve chilled.


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