David spent many summer weeks and weekends at Camp Gravatt, which is a camp and conference center for the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina. After we started dating, I attended a few weekend events there and have visited for other random events. One treat that Camp Gravatt is known for are these chocolate-peanut butter bars, which are known as Gravatt Squares. They are alwasy served at lunch on the last day, and everyone looks forward to them and gets really excited when they are put out on the tables. David’s parents often volunteer to help in the kitchen during weekend events, and my mother-in-law shared the recipe with me because she knows that I am crazy about them!
They are incredibly easy to make. After mixing the peanut butter layer, you pour melted chocolate over it, place it in the refrigerator, and wait for it to set. When you are ready to cut and serve these, I would recommend leaving them out at room temperature for about 30 minutes so they can soften and won’t be so difficult to cut. I am so happy I can make these at home and not have to wait to visit Camp Gravatt to have one!

1 stick butter, softened
¾ cups peanut butter (I always use creamy, but I think crunchy would be good too)

¾ cup chocolate chips
Mix butter, peanut butter, and confectioners’ sugar. Melt chocolate chips and pour on top. Refrigerate until set.
