  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ cups smooth peanut butter

  • Add the melted butter, powdered sugar, peanut butter and vanilla and mix until smooth. It will be pretty thick. Scrape down the sides of the blender and pulse to make sure everything is well mixed and evenly combined.

  • Spread the peanut butter mix into a 9x13 pan. Use a metal offset spatula to make the peanut butter mix smooth and level in the pan.
  • To make the topping, add the chocolate and ¼ cup peanut butter to a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after heating each time to melt the chocolate. Once the mix is completely melted and smooth, pour it over the peanut butter in the pan and spread it evenly.
