Introduction: No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Everybody loves a no bake dessert. Most people love peanut butter so in this dessert you have both. It's creamy a bit crunchy from the graham crackers so good! Perfect to take to a New Years party. It's similar to a Reese's cup but with the added graham cracker crunch! Hope you give it a try! To make your own simply follow the step by step instructable or watch the video tutorial here:

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools


For Peanut Butter Layer

  • 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup unsalted Butter, (room temp)
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 cups Graham Cracker crumbs

For Chocolate Layer

  • 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
  • ¼ cup Creamy Peanut Butter


Step 2: Peanut Butter Layer

Start by lining an 8x11 baking pan with parchment paper, making sure it goes up the sides for easy removal later on.

For the Peanut Butter Layer: Combine peanut butter, butter and salt in a large bowl using a hand mixture until smooth. Gradually add in powdered sugar until combined.

Step 3: Add Graham Crackers

Then gradually add in graham cracker crumbs until combined. I accidentally added more than I would have liked on the first round but it still came together with a little more mixing. Adding less graham crackers each time will make mixing easier.

Step 4: Scoop and Smooth

Add peanut butter mixture to prepared baking pan and press mixture down into one even layer.

Step 5: The Chocolate Layer

Chocolate Layer: In a double boiler, add chocolate chips and peanut butter to a small heat safe bowl and add water to a small sauce pan (water should come up 1 inch on the sides of sauce pan) and on low heat melt chocolate chips and peanut butter together.

Step 6: Pour Chocolate

Once melted, pour on top of peanut butter layer and spread out evenly.

Step 7: Cool and Cut

Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 and ½ hours or until bars are firm. Once the bars are set, take them out of the pan and slice.

Step 8: Enjoy!

Enjoy these somewhat Reese's bar snacks and time!
