No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

Comment on this recipe

"When I saw this recipe in a booklet put out by a Scout Troop, I thought it looked similar to the Peanut Butter Balls, but faster to make.

"When I took them to a church function, one little boy in particular couldn't seem to get enough of them."

BASE:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts (optional)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup chunky peanut butter
