Two things I think most of you want to hear about a recipe … it’s easy and it’s delicious. Well, here you go … melt in your mouth Peanut Butter Bars that require no cooking and can be made in just a few minutes!
Here’s how we do it
- 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1 cup butter (melted or softened)
- 1 cup + 4 tbsp of peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
You’re not going to believe how easy this is … and just how amazing the bars are!
Add the graham cracker crumbs to a medium sized mixing bowl
Add the sugar
Mix these together
Add the butter
Add 1 cup of peanut butter
Mix until you have a nice, smooth batter
Pour this mixture into a 9 x 13 pan
Spread evenly to cover the entire pan
Looking like this? Great! Now, put this pan in the fridge for about an hour …
Internet magic and it’s an hour later! Your base should now be solid
Melt those chocolate chips! I like to just use the microwave … less clean up, really easy to do as well
Add in those extra 4 tbsp of peanut butter and mix well. This step is going to keep the chocolate from becoming too hard. If you miss this step, once cooled the chocolate layer on top will just come right off the peanut butter bottom! (This is quite tragic when you are about to eat a lovely peanut butter bar …)
Pour the chocolate over your base
Try to get it evenly spread across the entire surface.
Place it back in the fridge to cool (about half an hour to an hour)
Chocolate should be solid, but not hard
Now grab a knife and cut into squares!
Place on a plate and serve!
So there you have it … simple yet delicious Peanut Butter Bars!
