No Bake Dessert for Summer Peanut Butter Cups

Here is a yummy recipe that I've made for  Christmas usually, but I dug it out of my mountain of recipes yesterday for a no bake dessert during the heat.  I hate using my oven in the summer, so I'm pretty sure I'll be making this more often in the hot months rather than just at Christmas time.   I know my peanut butter loving husband will be pleased with that decision.  
 This is all that is left from yesterday.  Trust me, they will go fast!

2 sticks of margarine or butter which ever you prefer.  I use butter, that is all I bake or in this case no-bake with.  
1 lb. powdered sugar (3 1/2 cups)
1/3 lb. graham crackers crushed (11 full crackers)
2 cups of peanut butter  (chunky is what the recipe calls for but I never have that so again it's your preference of creamy or chunky)
12 oz. package of chocolate chips (I use milk chocolate but once again you choose the kind you like)

Mix the first four ingredients together well and spread in a 9 X 13 pan.  Melt the chips and spread over the peanut butter mix.  I put them in the fridge for about ten minutes to let the chocolate set a tad and then cut into squares and EAT!  
Real easy and real good!
