Bethany's Peanut Butter Squares! (or hearts:)

Lauren, if you're still out there here it is :) My sweet friend Bethany made these for us this past Christmas and I wrote about them but didn't have the recipe to post. I had been craving these since Christmas and wanted to make them because they are AMAZING! So, I was feeling creative and decided to do some Valentine treat making! I wanted them to be festive, so I used a 1-2 inch heart cookie cutter to make them " Peanut Butter Hearts". They are so easy and fast, plus no baking is involved! Here's the recipe:

2 cups of smooth peanut butter
16.oz powdered sugar (a box:)
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick of butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Hand mix these ingredients until smooth, then press mixture into a 9 x 11 pan.
Melt a 12oz. bag os semi sweet chocolate chips in the microwave ( stirring and heating gradually until melted enough to spread on like frosting). Cut into 2inch squares or get creative, you can use all sorts of shapes of cookie cutters! 

I put the scraps off the cutter into white paper muffin cups, they looked cute and I didn't waste any! I hope you enjoy!
