My Retreat Snack

This year for quilt retreat I decided to try a new recipe. I was making a different dessert for work and came across this recipe on the inside of the cream cheese package. So thank you Crystal Farms for this!

Chocolate Peanut Fudge Bars

2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

1 (8oz) pkg Crystal Farms Cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons milk

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup coarsely chopped peanuts

In a medium bowl, combine crustt ingredients; mix well. Press firmly on bottom of 13x9 inch pan. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes. In a medium mixer bowl, combine filling ingredients; blend at low speed 30 seconds. Beat at medium-high speed 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Spread over crust. In medium saucepan, melt chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Stir in peanut butter; blend well. Stir in peanuts. Spread over filling. Refrigerate at least 4 hours. Store refrigerated.

While searching for a picture of the chocolate cookies, I came across an article from the Washington Post. It talked about the difficulty of finding this little box of wafers. There was a statement by a law professor who said that it was easier to find heroin than these chocolate wafers. If you live in Appleton, Woodman's carries these for under $4/box. You will need about 2/3 of the box for these bars. Eat the rest of the box for breakfast like I did! If you can't find the Nabisco wafers, a second choice would be Chocolate Teddy Grahams. I think that Oreo's would be too sweet.
