Buckeye Bars

Being from Ohio, Buckeyes are of course my absolute favorite treat. Unfortunatly making buckeyes can be a bit of work. Rolling the peanut butter mix, diping in chocolate etc etc. So intstead of going through all that work I just make Buckeye Bars. Taste just as yummy with much less work!

Buckeye Bars
1 cup margarine
1-1/2 cups creamy peanut butter, divided
16 oz pkg. powdered sugar
8 oz milk chocolate candy bar, broken up

Melt together margarine and one cup peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl on high setting for about 1-1/2 minutes. Mix well. Stir in powdered sugar; pat into a lightly greased 13x9 baking pan.
Melt together chocolate and remaining peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl on high setting for about 1-1/2 minutes; stir untl well blended. Pour chocolate mixture over peanut butter mixture. Chill in refrigerator until firm; cut into squares. Makes about 5 dozen.

Ok... being a Canuck and having a different type of measurement system. An 8oz chocolate bar... is that just a regular chocolate bar? I guess you can't have too much chocolate, but not enough would be tragic. ;)

How long can I store these before serving?

I didn't put the peanut butter in the chocolate - big mistake. They taste great but the chocolate is very hard to cut.

Fabulous! Thanks for sharing. I made these with dairy free butter & dairy free semi sweet chocolate and it was great!
