No-Bake Peanut Butter Bar Recipe
Tastes Like Reese's Pieces
It Just Doesn't Get Any Better
A peanut butter bar made on the top of the stove.
A Peanut Butter Base Topped With Melted Chocolate
No bake recipes can be a godsend for busy cooks. The following recipe is a keeper.
These peanut butter-flavored bars taste just like the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. They have a creamy, peanut-buttery bottom layer topped with thick chocolate. The chocolate layer is made from melted chocolate chips so you are really eating a chocolate layer instead of chocolate icing.
When I tried this recipe, I loved that idea. The chocolate layer was so much nicer than chocolate icing would have been. And it adds to the richness of these bars.
A batch of bars makes up in minutes and you don't even have to turn your oven on. All you need are a few simple ingredients to make these.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup butter, (room temperature)
- 2 cups graham crumbs
- 3 cups icing sugar
- 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
It's a good idea to keep a stock of items you don't use as often in your pantry. That way, when you go to make something, you aren't caught out. Recommendation: keep a box or two of graham crumbs in your pantry.
- In a large bowl, mix first 4 ingredients together (work with hands until moist) and pack into an ungreased pan.
- Melt chocolate chips over low heat. Spread over base and cut while chocolate is still soft.
