These no-bake bars taste a lot like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and are often requested by the 9 and 10 year olds in my Primary class. They are very rich, so I like to cut these into small squares. Recipe adapted from www.cooks.com
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 16 whole rectangles)
2 cups powdered (confectioners') sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup smooth peanut butter
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 Tbs. peanut butter
- Line a 9 x 13" pan with tin foil and set aside.
- In a food processor, crush graham crackers into fine crumbs (Or put in a Ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin).
- Melt butter, then pour it into a 1 cup measuring cup, swirl around then pour butter into a medium mixing bowl. Next, scoop 1 cup peanut butter into the emptied buttered measuring cup. This will make peanut butter come right out of the measuring cup with little trouble!
- Mix butter, graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar until well blended. Press mixture into foil-lined pan.
- In a small glass bowl, melt chocolate chips with 1 Tbs. of peanut butter for 30 seconds at a time, until melted and smooth. Pour over the top of peanut butter mixture and smooth the top.
- Place bars in the fridge just until chocolate is set. If bars are too firm, let set for 10-20 minutes at room temperature before cutting. Cut into bars with a sharp knife. Makes about 25 bars.
