Peanut Butter Bars

These No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars only require 5 simple ingredients and can be prepared in about 10 minutes. The perfect easy dessert for chocolate and peanut butter lovers!

Happy Thursday, friends! It’s been a little quiet on the blog the last couple weeks, but I promise there’s a good reason. If you’ve been by my site lately you may have noticed that it got a much-needed redesign. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can hop on over to the homepage to check it out!

Also new on the blog today are these delicious no-bake chocolate peanut butter bars. If you’ve never tried them before then you are in for a real treat! The taste of these bars kind of reminds me of a Reese’s peanut butter cup and they’re incredibly simple to throw together.

You only need 5 ingredients to make these bars (that’s including the peanut butter and chocolate, obviously) and they only take about 10 minutes to prep. The best part? You don’t even have to turn your oven on the make them!


1 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons peanut butter


In a medium bowl, mix together the butter or margarine, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners’ sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended.

Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan.

In a metal bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the prepared crust.

Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.
