  • Oh how yummy! I love PB & chocolate! Plus the fact that this is only 5 ingredients is a big bonus! I can totally imagine how addictive this, and you’re right, the hardest part would be waiting for it to set! :p

  • Oh, I am all about these bars! Actually, I think I should ban myself from making these…only because I would eat them all in less time than it took to make them! Excellent photos! 🙂

  • Yaaahhhsss, I am a HUGE peanut butter lover, exactly like you! These bars look heavenly! 5 ingredients and less than 20 minutes to make? There is no excuse in the world NOT to make these delicious bad boys! SO YUM! Cheers, girlfriend!

    I was so excited about this recipe, especially since my oven and stovetop are currently out of commission. I made these today, but, unfortunately, the graham cracker layer came out way wet. I’m wondering if maybe it was too much butter? Two sticks, right? These bars were intended for a potluck, but they’re too soft and messy to plate – my husband, however, was thrilled with that outcome and promptly ate another one, because the flavor is amazing!

    • Hi Sarabeth,

      I am really surprised to hear that it was crumbly. This is one of my favorite desserts and I make it a lot and never have a problem with the graham cracker portion falling apart. Did you refrigerate it for long enough? Maybe placing it in the freezer will also help to firm it up and make it easier to cut.

      I hope this helps! Thanks!

      Did you add the graham crackers to the peanut butter, sugar and butter OR just to the butter as a graham cracker crust?

      Because it would be mushy I you were trying to use it as a crust. It gets mixed in with the peanut butter, powder sugar & peanut butter as the bottom layer then topped with chocolate mixture. 😊

    • Sharon

      I just made these and my bottI’m layer wawas way too liquidy. I’m thinking way to much butter to make a crust?
      Trying to top with chocolate was impossible as it all folded in together 🙁

  • Rachel Arnold

    Hi, the recipe says 2 sticks (2 cups).. but a stick of butter is 1/2 cup. So, what is the correct amount?? Thank you!

  • Kim

    Is there a “healthier” substitution I could use for the powdered sugar by chance? Curious if anything else has been tried. Thank you!

  • Dino

    Great bars for Summer. I used only one stick of butter and came out perfect, so save the calories. It could use a little less chocolate.

  • Jenny

    Once they are cut, do they new to stay in the fridge or can i leave them out on a plate?

    • Hi Jenny,

      It depends on how long you are keeping them out and if they will be inside. Leftovers should be stored in the fridge and as long as they are in a cool place inside or over ice they should be fine for a party.



  • lisa whitehead

    can wwe used the crushed graham crackers in the box instead of crushing my own? thank you

  • Heather

    I’ve made these. Three times now in past 1.5 weeks (hey it’s the holidays and they make great gifts). MAKE THEM – it only takes 10-15 mins tops – then chill 1 hour cut up
    enjoy. They are AMAZING. Period. : ))) 10 starts if I could (no really that good)….

  • Stacie

    Is the 1 cup peanut butter supposed to be separated? 1/2 in the graham cracker mix and other 1/2 chocolate?

    • Hi Stacie,

      The 1 cup is for the filling, the 1/2 cup (later in the recipe) is for the chocolate layer.



  • Delilah

    So I made them but it says to melt the butter and I did. It seemed a lil watery. Is there something else I can do so it’s not like that ?

  • Christine Bradley

    I just made these. I substituted Graham Crackers with Crushed Vanilla Wafers as that’s my taste preference. I am patiently waiting for the 1 hour firm time. IF there’s any issues (which I doubt there will be) I will follow up! Looks so yummy.

    • Christine Bradley

      Follow Up! Incredible. Absolutely tastes like nutter butter cookies dipped in chocolate! I have photos of mine I cut up after 1 hour in the freezer into individual bars and placed in refrigerator for storage. Amazing Recipe. Thank you so much for this recipe!
