No Bake Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bars

Alright, folks, I know you all have been waiting for this one!  This one has turned out to be another family favourite, cheap and easy to make.

No Bake Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bars

Ingredients:
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (crushed animal crackers, not finely crushed, it end up resembling crushed peanuts)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chili powder
1 cup +4 tbsp reduced fat creamy peanut butter.
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Instrutions:
In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, graham cracker or animal crumbs, powdered sugar,chili powder, cinnamon and peanut butter ::If it is too difficult to mix at this point, you may wish to put the bowl into the microwave for a minute and a half.  This should liquify the peanut butter enough to mix it easier.
Mix until well blended.
Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13" inch pan
In the microwave, melt the chocolate chips together with the peanut butter, stirring every 30 seconds until smoothe.
Spread over peanut butter layer.
Refrigerate for at least an hour before cutting into squares
