Ok, these seriously are the best things in the world. They are great for holiday time to take to parties or work or whatever. People freak out at how good they taste and they are so easy to whip up. I usually keep the ingrediants on hand, so I can make them in a hurry if I need to! So here it goes:

1 cup butter (2 sticks)
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup chunky peanut butter
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 box of cinnamon graham crackers, crushed (about 11/2 cups)      
1 12oz bag of chocolate chips

Melt butter in a large saucepan. Remove from heat & add vanilla & peanut butter & mix well. Add the powdered sugar & graham crackers. Stir until combined, it will be quite stiff. Pat into an ungreased 9x13 pan. Melt the choco chips ( in the microwave or put  a bowl of a pan of simmering water), spread over the peanut butter mixture. Fridge for at least one hour.( I don't always have an hour, so I've found putting them in the freezer  til I have to leave works just as well!)

I use cinnamon grahams but regular is good, also you don't have to use both kinds of peanut butter, that's just what I like. I also use really good choco chips( Ambrosia are my favorite lately), but any will do. These are rich & delicious!

I made these last night for a party.  They were very easy to make.  Then I was looking around on the web at other recipes and I realized that the ingredients in your cookies (except for the graham crackers) are the same ingredients in peanut butter fudge.  So I took some of the cookies I had made, put them in a pan, heated them over low heat to blend the peanut butter and chocolate together to make peanut butter/chocolate fudge.  The cookies also taste pretty good that way as well, I discovered this morning as I gorged on several for a *very* healthy breakfast!  Anyway, for someone like me who does not cook much, these cookies are very easy and quick to make.

I made a recipe similar to this before, where the peanut butter mixture is on bottom and the chocolate goes on top, and I found it extremely hard to cut into piece and get out of the pan.  I had to kind of just dig each piece out one at a time and they were not very attractive.  Do you have any advice about how to get them out of the pan?

I've never had  a problem getting them out of the pan. I usually just use a metal pan, and it is not greased.  This recipie may just have more mositure in it. They don't usually come out in perfectly pretty little squares, but they taste so good that poeple don't notice it!! Also, usually I end up freezing them for a shorter amount of time which may make a difference. But as I said they taste so darn good that I've never had a complaint about the way they look!!
