No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

NO-BAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BARS

As you all you know, I love to bake which mostly requires me to turn on my oven. I sometimes want to give my oven a break, but still make a delicious treat. And these No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars are the perfect way to give my oven a break!

These No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars are seriously the BEST no-bake dessert ever and their super simple to make. They taste just like a Reese’s peanut butter cup with a delicious texture from the graham crackers, in my opinion they taste BETTER then a Reese’s peanut butter cup. So if your a peanut butter lover, you need to make these ASAP!

NO-BAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BARS

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

✔ To make it super easy for you to cut these bars into squares, line your 9×9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Once the chocolate peanut butter bars have chilled in the fridge for at least 1 hour, lift the bars out of the pan, folding down the aluminum foil sides. Then use a sharp knife to cut these bars into squares.

✔ I highly recommend using milk chocolate chocolate chips because they have a sweeter taste to them, which makes these bars taste like a Reese’s peanut butter cup. But you could use semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips if you would like.

 Lastly, I recommend serving these bars chilled. So leave them in the fridge until right before your ready to serve them. And store any leftovers (which their won’t be any) in the fridge.

    is this recipe for 9×9 or 13×9? You mention use of both in instructions….

      9×9 baking pan! It was a typo, sorry! 🙂

    Do you think these would work with rice krispies instead of graham cracker crumbs?

    • Jenn — November 23rd, 2015 @ 2:59 pm

      I have never tried using Rice Krispies, so I’m not sure.

    I’m excited to try these! Am I wondering if they hold up well after freezing? Thoughts?! 

    • Jenn — November 11th, 2015 @ 2:33 pm

      Yes, you can freeze them up to 3 months. Enjoy!

    The PB mixture is pretty much the same as what I use when making buckeyes(PB balls) for Christmas. I accidentally bought cinnamon graham crackers and they were extra tummy in them

    Crazy for the. The hardest part is waiting the 1-2 hours for them to set and eat.

    These look SO fabulous, Jenn! I adore easy bar recipes like this, especially when they’re no-bake!

  8. Beth @ bethcakes — April 30, 2015 at 9:16 pm

    I’ve made the store-bought box mix version of these, so I totally need to try them from scratch! Yum! 🙂

    My grandmother always makes these for picnics and Christmas. I have to really be careful not to eat the entire tray of them. Definitely in my top three favorite desserts.
