Buckeye Bars

Food 2 019

I first saw this on the Kraft recipe website. Pretty simple to make. My family could hardly keep their hands off them long enough for me to get a picture.

Oh, and this recipe uses semi-sweet chocolate, but since we’re bigger fans of the lighter stuff, I used milk chocolate for the topping. Also, if you aren’t into microwave ovens–we’re not–you can melt the chocolate and cool whip over a double boiler. It worked fine. And here’s a tip–for a nice, clean cut–use a pizza cutter to slice them into perfect squares.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

3/4 cup  crunchy peanut butter
22 NILLA Wafers, crushed
2 cups  powdered sugar

1/2 of 8-oz. tub COOL WHIP Whipped Topping (do not thaw)

3 squares  BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate

Line an 8-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Beat butter and peanut butter with mixer until blended. Mix in wafer crumbs. Gradually add sugar, mixing well after each addition. Press onto bottom of pan.

Microwave COOL WHIP and chocolate in bowl on HIGH 1 min.; stir. Microwave 15 to 30 sec. or until chocolate is melted; stir until blended. Spread over peanut butter layer.

Refrigerate 2 hours. Use foil handles to lift dessert from pan before cutting to serve.

Now all that’s left is to find someone sweet to give them to…
