buckeye bars

This is excellent when you need that peanut-butter-and-chocolate fix.



BUCKEYE BARS

1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, softened
3/4 c. crunchy peanut butter
22 NILLA Wafers, crushed
2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 of 8-oz. tub COOL WHIP Whipped Topping (Do not thaw.)
3 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate

LINE 8" 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 microwaveable 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 about 2 hours. Use foil handles to lift dessert from pan before cutting to serve.

oh these look yummy! Do you know if it ends up tasting like the buckeye cookies (pb balls with the partially covered in choc)?

Love the PB & Choc thing-but ingredients not translating across the big pond. Can you tell me if the wafers are just vanillae cream wafers you buy in the cookie section of the supermarket. How much weight wise is the chocolate, and is powdered sugar the same as confectioners sugar, ie used for making icing?

Yeah, the powdered sugar is the same as the confectioners sugar.
