Peanut Butter Squares (D, TNT)
Source: "How To Be A Domestic Goddess," by Nigella Lawson
Yield: About 4 dozen

Scant 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1-1/3 cups confectioners' sugar
Scant 1/4 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

Ingredients for Topping:
7 ounces milk chocolate
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Stir all the ingredients for the base together until smooth. Press the sandy mixture into a 9" square pan, greased and make the surface as even as possible.

To make the topping, melt the chocolates and butter together (in a microwave for ease, for a minute or two on medium) and spread the base. Put the pan in the refrigerator to set. When the chocolate has hardened, cut into small squares - because, more-ish as it undeniably is, it is also very rich.
