Tsk! Tsk! ... Keep it G-rated, People!
... There. I didn't think so.
Hmmmm.... do you sometimes think I am like Clint Eastwood, having these conversations with an invisible audience?
Yeah, me too....
... Anyhow, here is the recipe - you'll be whipping them up too:-)
AMAZING NO-BAKE PEANUT BUTTER SQUARES
MAKES:60 squares (each approx. 1-1/4-inch square)
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups icing sugar, sifted
8 squares (225 g pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
LIGHTLY grease 13x9-inch baking pan; line with parchment paper, 2 ends extending over edge of pan.
SET aside 60 (approx. 3/4 cup) whole Shreddies for topping. Place remaining Shreddies in a resealable plastic bag and crush by hand to yield 1-1/2 cups coarse crumbs.
MICROWAVE peanut butter and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 45 sec., or until butter has melted; stir to combine. Stir in sugar and crumbs.
SPREAD mixture into prepared pan, patting down to form a firm crust.
MICROWAVE chocolate in medium microwaveable bowl on MEDIUM 2-3 min., stirring once. There should still be some unmelted chunks. Stir until all chocolate is melted and smooth.
SPREAD evenly over crust. Arrange 60 Shreddies over top, forming rows of 6 x 10.
COOL at room temperature 20 min. Using sharp paring knife, score chocolate along rows, to form 60 squares. Refrigerate 1 hour. Using parchment paper ends, carefully lift mixture from pan and place on cutting board. Cut into 60 squares.
TIPS & SUGGESTIONS
Store in air-tight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Shreddies can easily be crushed or crumbled by hand; no need for food processor or rolling pin.
