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! [end-story]

    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!

    Lissa says:

    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?

      Stephanie says:

      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!!

    Alyssa Bush says:

    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!

    Stephanie says:

    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!
