2. Spread the mixture onto the bottom of a 9x13" pan. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and oil, and microwave for 30 seconds.

These make great easter eggs when rolled into egg shapes and dipped in the melted chocolate!

Yum!!! These are so delicious.  Because I have a peanut allergy I used almond butter, and because I was out of graham crackers I crushed up ginger snap cookies.  At first I thought the ginger snaps might be too spicy in the mixture, but on the contrary, it was a definite party for the taste buds! I also freezed them due to lack of patience :)Cool

Have made these twice, substituting (well ground up) walnuts and pecans for the graham crackers. I also cut down a bit on the vegan butter and sugar to be a little more healthy.
Will be making this many times again, thanks for the recipe

soooo amazing! I made this twice so far, served each time to non vegans who absolutely loved it! I even won over my friend's boyfriend who was worried when I said I was bringing over a vegan dessert  ;)b  So easy to make yet so amazingly addicting. I used cinnamon graham crackers since I couldn't find vegan regular, I think it added an extra pop to the flavors.

Awesome....these bars passed the test of vegan and non vegan kids.  Normally this is very hard to do.  Thank you for this wonderful recipe which is a great dessert or snack given the peanut butter.

These bars are ridiculously delicious.  I didn't have powdered sugar so I used 1/2 cup regular sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar.  Amazing!  It's not overly sweet and the texture is perfect.  This is my new favorite dessert recipe.

Made these awhile ago and today and they're excellent! I was worried at first about what the graham crackers were for but they really give the peanut butter a great texture (it doesn't end up tasting like graham crackers). I cut down the powdered sugar a little and used 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips (with 1 1/14 teaspoons oil). Mixed the peanut butter mixture easily with a pastry blender.
I used my fingers to spread the chocolate to the edges! Mine hardened up within ten minutes. I found it easier to cut them before they were fully hardened (less cracking of the chocolate).

The first time I made them I decided to make more work for myself and do a bottom layer of chocolate too. It was unnecessary, imo, and actually too much chocolate so from now own I'll stick with just the top layer. Definitely very Reese's-like!
