Peanut Butter Bars….Mmmm….
My grandmother made this recipe for my family time and again when I was growing up. When I went off to college, my grandmother lived close by and would bring a container of this luscious treat to me on occasion. If you like a Reese’s Cup, you are sure to like this confection.
This recipe is super easy, requires few ingredients, and is no-bake. If you need a quick treat to give to a friend or neighbor or to take to a party, consider this recipe.

These are dangerously good. I have trouble stopping after one once I get the first delicious taste.
This platter will go to school for a Christmas luncheon. I predict that it will come home empty!
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 16 oz. package powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1 12 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Melt butter. I melt mine in the microwave.
Pour melted butter into a stand mixer bowl and add peanut butter. Mix until combined.
Gradually add powdered sugar and then graham cracker crumbs. The mixture will be quite thick.
Press mixture into a 9 x 13" baking pan.
Melt chocolate chips over hot water and spread on top. Use a double boiler or melt chips in a glass mixing bowl set over a pot of simmering water.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes and then cut into small squares. Return to the refrigerator until the chocolate is completely set.
Be sure not to refrigerate too long before cutting the bars into squares. If you do, the chocolate will crack.
