Clark Bars

Why Clark Bars? Why now? Well, the Super Bowl is on Sunday, and I usually like to make something in homage to the two teams playing. A few years ago when Pittsburgh was in the Super Bowl, I had a hard time thinking of what to make. I found out that Clark Bars are made there; searched for a recipe; and came up with this one. They are very easy and good; when you see the ingredient list it's not hard to understand why.

By the way, a friend of mine told me that Pittsburgh is famous for serving french fries on top of everything: even salad!

Clark Bars

1 (16 ounce) package graham crackers,
1 cup melted butter
2 1/2 cups peanut butter
2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk


Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

Mix graham cracker crumbs, butter, peanut butter and powdered sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Press the mixture into the prepared pan.

In a small pot melt chocolate chips and condensed milk together over a low heat. Stir until well mixed. Spread the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter mixture. Chill the cookie-bars for 4 hours. Cut and serve.

Sounds good but buying a candy bar at the store is easier.
