No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

 

No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

The Story:

Alright, I have seen these bars EVERYWHERE.  People are obsessed with them because it only takes 6 ingredients and you don’t have to use an oven.  Well la…tee…dah…  Guess what?  I think the way everyone else has made them is sorta…ugly.  They make the peanut butter layer and then dump chocolate on top and call it done.  Come on!  Just add a few chopped up Reese’s cups, Reese’s Pieces or crunched Butterfingers to the top to make them more special!

    These look so yummy!
    My sons are going on a camping trip next sunday and i think that these will be PERFECT for their lunchboxes!
    I just wanted to ask, how long can these last (in a fridge/without a fridge), before they are no longer suitable to eat?
    The journey to the camping site is quite a long way… and i would like to package some to give to relatives etc.
    please reply =D

    Made these last night and brought them into the office today. They were a huge hit! I would suggest to people that if you want dense coverage of the mini Reeses on top, use the 9×9 pan. I used a 9×13 and it was fine, but it doesn’t look like yours in the picture….or you can just use more than one bag of the mini Reeses! Either way, they received rave reviews from all. Thanks Lizzy!

    O my gosh, these were awesome! My stove broke and I’m used to baking goodies 2-3 times a week. This recipe saved me, I bake to get rid of stress, so thank you. Just a question….i popped them in the fridge for about 20 minutes after doing the chocolate layer and then sprinkled the Reese’s and put it back in the fridge. They were on there overnight and when I cut them this morning, the bottom layer kept cracking in all different ways. Is there anything I can do to help prevent this?

      They were left in the refrigerator too long. The recipe stated to place them in the frig for 20 minutes just to set. They were too cold. If you had left them at room temperature for a while they would have probably not cracked so much. Try that next time. Good luck!!

    I just wanted to say that these have been a huge hit at all the parties I have attended this summer being home from college. I actually added more chocolate chips and peanut butter for the top layer because it filled out better that way. But I love how easy this is! And if anyone is wondering about two cups of graham crackers is one individually wrapped package of graham crackers! :) thanks for sharing!

    I made these bars 1 1/2 times the recipe and used a 9×13 pan. It was great. I wanted the bars to be thicker as in the 9×9 pan. I will certainly be making these again.

    Your recipes are amazing. Keep them coming. Thanks for sharing with all of us. I’m sure everyone else appreciates it as much as I do. I catered for 25 years and had to retire due to a medical condition. I really miss it but still love to cook, especially bake. Thanks again!!!!!!!

    I was looking for something similar to make for a peanut butter addict and just loved the way you have decorated it. Such a pleasing treat and so easy to make with items right in the pantry. Just a couple things to share with someone who might be trying this for the first time:
    - I used 250g of milk chocolate (since I didn’t have chocolate chips on hand) and it worked just as well.
    - being in saudi where graham crackers are a rare commodity I had to use digestive cookies. And I have tasted another version where they used rice crispys and it added a nice crunch too.
    - I used 1 cup of icing sugar and found it was just right.

    Thanks for sharing and will definitely check back for other sweet ideas too!

    I was wondering- what size pan, 9×9 or 9×13, did you use for your pictures above??

    • 22.1

      I used an 8X8 but the recipe is for a larger pan, I just didn’t want to make a huge pan for myself or else I would eat it all. The only real difference is I used more pb cups on top to decorate!

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

    are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

    Thank you!

    I tend not to leave many comments, but i did some searching and wound
    up here No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars – Your Cup of

    Is it only me or does it appear like a few of these comments appear
    as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And,
    if you are writing on other sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you
    have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of
    your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
