Peanut Butter Cup Bars

I found this recipe on the King Arthur Flour website. They taste just like peanut butter cups to me. I love that these are No-bake. They are easy to throw together and keep for a long time in your fridge. That is, unless you are like me and eat them in two days!

Peanut Butter Cup Bars


1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 sticks butter, melted
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used 1/2 semi-sweet and half milk chocolate)

In a large bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, butter, powdered sugar and peanut butter.
Mix till well-combined.

Spread mixture in a lightly greased 9 x 13-pan. Chill in refrigerator for approximately 10 minutes.
While peanut butter layer is chilling, melt chocolate chips, in a microwave oven or in a double boiler on top of the stove.
Spread chocolate over peanut butter.

Cut bars into squares, but leave them in the pan. Return to refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour. Store leftovers in the fridge, tightly covered.

  2. These are INCREDIBLE! Taste even better than the real thing. My 14-yr old son and his friend came into the kitchen when I was cutting them. One taste and their eyes rolled backwards! They asked to take the whole pan to my son's room. No way...I might never have had anothe piece myself. Thanks for the great recipe. As long as I can ignore the fattening indredients I'll be making this over and over and over...
