Melt those chocolate chips!  I like to just use the microwave … less clean up, really easy to do as well

Add in those extra 4 tbsp of peanut butter and mix well. This step is going to keep the chocolate from becoming too hard. If you miss this step,  once cooled the chocolate layer on top will just come right off the peanut butter bottom! (This is quite tragic when you are about to eat a lovely peanut butter bar …)

g8-chocolate

Pour the chocolate over your base

Try to get it evenly spread across the entire surface.

Place it back in the fridge to cool (about half an hour to an hour)

Chocolate should be solid, but not hard
