No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Bars | Satisfaction Through Christ

Our son came home recently for a very short, but wonderful, visit.  I wanted to make him something that I knew he’d love, so I decided to try some No Bake Peanut Butter Bars that I found floating around on Pinterest.

It’s a wonder that he even likes peanut butter because the entire time I was pregnant with him the smell of peanut butter would make me sick.

This treat is super easy and I’m thinking when the holidays roll around, I’ll be making several batches of it to give as a homemade treat.

The Peanutty Goodness - YUM  | Satisfaction Through Christ

 

For the Peanutty Goodness You’ll Need:

2 cups of peanut butter

1 lb of powder sugar

1 cup of melted butter (I had unsalted on hand and used it, but I’m sure either will be just fine)

1 ½ cups of graham cracker crumbs  (*note: I almost didn’t make this because I couldn’t get past this ingredient. It doesn’t seem like it would “add” anything wonderful to it, but it works and it’s delicious.)

Directions:

Melt the butter and pour all of this into a bowl and mix until combined.

Spread into the bottom of a wax paper (or aluminum foil) lined pan, but sneak a few bites or 7 of your yummy dessert. This is heavenly.

For the topping:

Next Melt your package of milk chocolate chips with a few table spoons of shortening or peanut butter and pour over the top

Let set up for about half an hour (or 5 min in the fridge) then slice and enjoy!

I actually used some chocolate “candi quick” that I had on hand. Comes with its own microwave safe pan and is easy to melt.  Tastes amazing.

If you whip this up, let me know your thoughts.  It literally is as easy as it sounds, and chances are you have everything you need in the pantry.  Been wondering what to do with those graham crackers? Well, here you go.

It would be more work, but you could make the peanut butter mixture into balls and dip them in chocolate.

Or you could put the peanut butter mixture into mini muffin cups and then pour the chocolate over top to have bite sized servings you can package beautifully. 

Make double and share with your local Volunteer Fire Fighters, neighbors, or as a treat for a new mom or someone that just recently got home from a hospital stay.

What are some of your “sharing” suggestions for this wonderful treat?

      that is a wonderful options too!! thanks for mentioning it. I also made this but cut the recipe in half – and used splenda. (just a little over 3/4 cup) I put it in too big of a pan, so it didn’t really set well but was still amazing. no one could tell i used spleanda. they just thought it was a peanutbutter pie of sorts.

    My mom used to make something like this with sweetened and condensed milk. Pinned. Looks terrific. Thanks for bringing this to Weekend Bites.
