Ah, this one’s a blast from the past. I’ve been making these Peanut Butter Bars at least since high school, and maybe even before that. They’re simple, rich, and taste as good as a Reese’s! (not quite the same, but so good!)
No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup peanut butter (we like crunchy)
- 1 sleeve (about 20 squares) graham crackers, crushed
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- ¾ cup chocolate chips (we like semi-sweet)
Melt butter. Blend with peanut butter and crushed graham crackers. Sift powdered sugar into peanut butter mixture, one cup at a time. Stir until well blended. Batter will be stiff! (I sometimes squash it all together with my hands ~ fun!)
Press into a 9×9 pan. Melt chocolate chips; spread over bars. Refrigerate before cutting into small squares. (They are as rich as fudge!)
*** Feel free to make thinner bars by pressing them into a 9×13 pan. You may need 1 cup of chocolate chips to cover the surface area.
*** Dark chocolate and milk chocolate would be fabulous, too. Use what you like!
*** Fun treat to add to Christmas trays!
