I am honestly shocked by how easy and how GOOD these no bake peanut butter chocolate bars are. If you love old school peanut butter cups, you will love these tasty creations! Similar to our Nutty By Nature peanut butter cookies, these bars work best with real, creamy peanut butter. No baking. Make ahead. Enjoy!
NO BAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BAR RECIPE
1/2 cup salted butter, melted (add ¼ tsp salt if using unsalted butter)
1 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 8 full sheet graham crackers or you can buy them already ground)
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter, divided
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Line an 8×8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, and confectioners’ sugar together. Stir in 1 cup of peanut butter.
Press evenly into your baking pan.
Melt remaining 2 Tablespoons of peanut butter with the chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stove. Stir until smooth.
Spread chocolate mixture evenly over peanut butter layer.
Chill in the refrigerator until completely firm.
Allow bars to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before cutting.
