Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

Today’s recipe brings back a ton of nostalgic feelings. My mom made these bars for us when we were little and they were my absolute favorite part about the dessert tray during the holidays. She’d make one large show-stopper dessert, then set out a tray of pecan tassies, chewy cherry coconut cookies, and these glorious Reese’s bars. You can only imagine what I always grabbed first.

I almost completely forgot about them until Kevin asked me to make “no-bake bars.” Could you clarify that, please?! I described these to him and within seconds, I was in the kitchen with all 5 ingredients out on the counter.


For the Peanut Butter Layer
1 cup butter melted
3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
For the Topping
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter


In a large bowl, mix together the ingredients for the peanut butter layer.
Press into a 13X9 inch baking pan.
Chill for one hour.
Place chocolate chips and peanut butter into a microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave for one minute. Stir until melted and smooth. Repeat if necessary until all the chocolate chips are melted.
Pour over the peanut butter layer. Chill for two hours or until firm.
Slice and enjoy!
