Mrs Cianciosi’s chocolate peanut butter bars

These are a favorite of many – like a homemade version of a Reese’s peanut butter cup.  this recipe is from my friend Helen’s mom.  Mrs Cianciosi was a wonderful kind lady, a ton of fun and an excellent baker and cook.  I remember spending many weekends at their house  there during winter and summer breaks from Geneseo.  

2 cups peanut butter,   1 cup butter (soft),  2 cups graham cracker crumbs,   1 tsp vanilla, 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar.  mix well.  pour into 8 x8 pan.  top w melted chocolate (melt 2 cups chocolate chips w 2 tbs oil or shortening).  store covered at room temperature.

Sometime I cheat and melt the butter.  then I add more powdered sugar if need be.
