Boredom Bars

So, yesterday I was really feeling bored.  Since Aaron and I are sharing a car, and he had it, I was stuck home all day.  I hate to complain, since this time off has been really great.  But I really wanted to bake, and I couldn't go anywhere to buy ingredients.  So, I thought, what can I make with what's here?  Instantly, I thought of a childhood favorite, the peanut butter bar.  It's like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, but I insist, it's better.  And unbelievably easy to make.

Here's the recipe if you're interested:

-2 sticks margarine, melted
-3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
-2 cups graham cracker crumbs
-1 cup peanut butter (I prefer creamy)
-2 cups chocolate chips
-2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Mix together margarine, sugar, graham cracker crumbs, and peanut butter.  Press into a 9X13" buttered pan.  Melt chocolate chips and vegetable oil.  Frost peanut butter mixture, and refrigerate until set.  Then, just try to make them last more than a few days.  I bet you won't make it.
