Servings: 48 Prep 45 mins Chill 30 mins Stand 1 hr

Ingredients

  • 2 10 ounce packages peanut butter chips (such as Reese's)
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, cut up
  • 2 cans (14 ounces each) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups finely ground honey graham cracker crumbs (15 whole crackers)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted peanuts, finely chopped, plus 1 cup coarsely chopped or left whole
  • 1 12 ounce package semisweet chocolate chips

Make It

1. Line 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan with nonstick foil.

2. Combine peanut butter chips and butter in large glass bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds. Stir. Return to microwave; heat on HIGH for 1 minute and 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds. Whisk in condensed milk.

3. Gradually stir in crumbs and the 1/2 cup of chopped peanuts (use hands, if necessary, to mix well). Pat the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

4. Microwave chocolate chips in a medium-size microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 1 minute. Stir until smooth; microwave in additional 15-second increments, if necessary. Spread over top of peanut mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup nuts. Let stand at room temperature until firm, about 1 hour. Cut into 48 squares.
