stir all ingredients for the bottom together until smooth. press the mixture into the brownie pan. melt chocolate and butter together and pour on the peanut butter mix. put in the fridge to set. cut into small squares - try not to eat too many!

graham cracker treats

pre-heat oven to 325
line cookie sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray. place graham crackers on cookie sheet in a single layer. in a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. add the brown sugar. boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. pour the brown sugar mixture over the graham crackers and spread evenly. bake in oven for 8 minutes. turn oven off. remove pan and sprinkle chocolate chips over the pan and place back in oven for 8 minutes. remove from oven and spread chocolate in an even layer. refrigerate for 1 hour. break into pieces and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
