Insanely delicious Peanut Butter Bars! These no bake bars are rich, creamy and delicious topped with a thick layer of chocolate.


  1. I found these didn't turn out as I had hoped! The semi-sweet chocolate gave it a funny flavor and the chocolate was super hard to cut unto while the peanut butter bottom was a bit soft. I bake out of my home and wanted to try some new recipes this just isn't one I'd use. - Read more ...
  2. I decreased the butter to 1 1/2 sticks, and used 14 graham crackers, and milk chocolate chips. I used softened butter instead of melted. You really need to pulverize the graham crackers to a fine powder to get the texture of this recipe right (a food processor works great). I used a 7x11 pan so - Read more ...
  3. Kids said that these are better than Reese's! Very tasty. Has anyone tried using just 1 stick of butter successfully? I'll let you know if it works! UPDATE: I made these with 1 1/2 sticks of butter with equally delicious results. I will update again trying 1 stick...UPDATE #2: Okay, I tried one stick of - Read more ...
  4. These were great! I was a little worried because I used natural peanut butter and the bottom layer was really runny when I put it in the pan. I am glad I kept them refrigerated because they do soften quickly at room temperature but all in all, they turned out great. Everyone who tried them - Read more ...
  5. SO GOOD!!!! If you are a peanut butter/chocolate fanatic like me, then you will love this. I followed other reviewers suggestions to make the recipe easier by melting the peanut butter with butter, then mixing with graham crackers and powdered sugar. Also, chill the peanut butter base for 15 minutes before topping with chocolate mixture.
  6. These were really good. I would like a bit more peanut butter flavor (personal preference). Based on another recipe I cut the bars up after chilling for 10 minutes then chilled until ready to serve. I had no problem with the chocolate breaking up that way.
  7. These have become an absolute staple in my house! Also, it is my total standard recipe for 'gotta-bring-something-sweet' to 'fill-in-the-blank'. SO easy, SO fast and terrific for satisfying those cravings. I chill the peanut butter base for 15 or 20 minutes before topping with the chocolate so the warm chocolate doesn't melt into the peanut - Read more ...
  8. I loved these Peanut Butter bars! I helped my Mom make them. They were easy enough that I could make them on my own! This tops any dessert I ever had! We froze half of the bars they were great too. For the peanut butter part, we only used a half of cup of butter - Read more ...
  9. Out of all the chocolate/peanut butter bar recipes on this site, this one to me is the best because it has a good ratio of chocolate layer to peanut butter layer and also is not too sweet to allow the chocolate and peanut butter flavors to shine through. I made a few alterations for my - Read more ...
  10. A hit, a major hit. Our guests loved this, we loved this, my children asked me to make it again this week. Since we only have dessert once a week, that is a big compliment! To make mixing easier, I put the pb in the pan with the butter and let it "melt" along with - Read more ...
