Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars

This recipe is one I came across on Pinterest from the blog, Let’s Dish.  It sounded simple and delicious so even though my son can’t take anything with nuts to daycare, I decided to try it as an at-home snack.  I’m sure the neighbours won’t mind helping if it turns out too much for the two of us.  Hope you enjoy them too!Reese's Peanut Butter Bars - A Pat & A Pinch

Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars

1 cup butter melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (I used the food processor to make a fine meal of the graham crackers)
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 cup + 4 tablespoons peanut butter
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, 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 (to create a double boiler), or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the remaining 4 tablespoons of peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the peanut butter layer. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.

  1. Hmmm… must try these. I just saw I had some graham cracker crumbs in my pantry that should probably get eaten sooner rather than later. 🙂
