Alright peanut butter lovers! Are you craving some reese's peanut butter cups? Let's whip up a batch of these no bake bars that will curb that craving! You're just 5 simple ingredients away from these delicious peanut butter treats!


Units Scale
  • 3 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup Butter, melted
  • 2 cups Chocolate Chips


  1. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment or wax paper if you are wanting to be able to lift these out of the pan to cut them up.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar.
  3. Stir in the peanut butter and melted butter.  Mix until very well combined.
  4. Pat out evenly in a 9x13 pan.
  5. Melt the chocolate chips carefully in the microwave.  
  6. Spread the melted chocolate across the peanut butter layer.
  7. Refrigerate for about 1 1/2 hours.  
  8. Cut into small squares and serve.


I believe this takes between 2 and 3 packages of graham crackers crushed in a food processor.  I usually just buy the box of graham cracker crumbs for convenience. They are found in the baking aisle in most stores.
