Why I bake on NFL Sundays

My beloved Buffalo Bills have 3 losses this season. There are only 3 Sundays i have not baked. So clearly, there is a correlation between a Buffalo win and my baking. I can not be responsible for another loss, so even though I am exhausted, I made a treat for tomorrow – no bake peanut butter bars. They are usually made with crushed Graham crackers, but I opted for Ritz crackers.

You could also probably use chocolate graham crackers or nilla wafers or a similar cookie too. I have 3 huge bags of nestle chocolate chips, so I used that for my topping. #GOBILLS!

Bar ingredients

  • 2 sleeves Ritz crackers, finely crushed
  • 10 tbs butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Directions –melt butter and peanut butter in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir smooth. Add remaining ingredients. Press into 8×8 or 9×9 pan lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray.

Topping – microwave 2 cups chocolate chips and 1 tbs shortening for 45 seconds. Stir smooth. (You may need to do another 20 seconds). Pour on top and smooth out.

Put in fridge for an hour. Cut. Store in covered container.
