Reese's Peanut Butter Bars
A Perfect Coupling of Flavors
It Just Doesn't Get Any Better
These bars taste like peanut butter cups and are 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 bars taste just like the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. They have a creamy, bottom layer and this is 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 squares.
- 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.
- Cream butter and peanut butter In a large bowl.
- Add icing sugar and stir in.
- Add graham crumbs and mix with hands until moist.
- Pat down into a pan, pressing on surface to make it even. A small lightly floured glass can be used to do this.
- Melt chocolate chips over low heat. Spread over base and cut while chocolate is still soft.
- Chill bars until chocolate hardens.
