No-Bake Peanut Butter Bar Recipe

Tastes Like Reese's Pieces

It Just Doesn't Get Any Better

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup butter, (room temperature)
  • 2 cups graham crumbs
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted

Tip

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.

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix first 4 ingredients together (work with hands until moist) and pack into an ungreased pan.
  2. Melt chocolate chips over low heat. Spread over base and cut while chocolate is still soft.
