No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Today I have a very yummy recipe for you! This is a recipe I made when I went over to a girlfriend's house! It's fun to make with friends too! :) (By the way, this is a very "girl" treat. Chocolate... Peanut butter! YUM!) Well my brothers really liked it too... Anyway here it is!...
No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
2 cups peanut butter, divided
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar, divided
3 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups (12 oz. package) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels, divided
GREASE 13x9-inch baking pan
BEAT 1 1/4 cups peanut butter and butter in large mixing bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in 1 cup powdered sugar. With hands or wooden spoon, work in remaining powdered sugar, graham cracker crumbs and 1/2 cup morsels. Press evenly into prepared pan. Smooth top with spatula.
MELT remaining peanut butter and remaining morsels in medium, heavy-duty saucepan over lowest possible heat, stirring constantly, until smooth, or melt in microwave. Spread over graham cracker crust in pan. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until chocolate is firm; cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.
We (my friend and I) used chocolate cookie crumbs instead of graham cracker crumbs. It was very good that way too! Just make sure that you take the frosting out of the middle first. :)
You can also use crunchy peanut butter.
That's all for now!! :)
