NO BAKE PEANUT BUTTER BARS
Today’s recipe brings back a lot of nostalgic feelings for me. My mom made these bars for us when we were little and they were my favorite part of the dessert tray around the holidays. She made a big, spectacular dessert and then prepared a tray of pecan candies, chewy cherry coconut cookies, and those gorgeous Reese’s bars. You can only imagine what I always took first.
I had almost completely forgotten about them until Kevin asked me to make “no-bake bars.”“Could you please clarify?! I described them to him and within seconds he was in the kitchen with the 5 ingredients on the counter.
For the peanut butter layer
- 1 cup melted butter
- 3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups creamy Peanut Butter
In a large bowl, mix the ingredients for the peanut butter topping.
Press into a 13 x 9 inch baking pan.Let cool for an hour.
Place the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave for one minute. Stir until melted and diluted. Repeat if necessary until all chocolate chips are melted.Pour over the peanut butter layer. Chill for two hours or until firm.
Cut and enjoy!
