  • Butter: You can use either unsalted or salted butter in this!
  • Graham Cracker Crumbs: Add a nice crunch and holds the bars together.
  • Peanut Butter: I use creamy peanut butter in the bars and chocolate layer. I have not tried making this with other nut butters.
  • Powdered Sugar: Adds a nice sweetness to the bars.
  • Chocolate Chips: I use semi sweet chocolate chips however you can substitute dark chocolate if you prefer!

How to make Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

Simply combine the butter, graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter and powdered sugar in a large bowl. Pour the mixture into a 9 x 13 pan. In a separate bowl combine melted chocolate and peanut butter. Spread the chocolate peanut butter mixture on top of the bars. Place in the fridge for at least an hour to firm up. Then cut into squares. Serve these with a tall glass of milk and enjoy!

For a salty twist top with crumbled pretzels or peanuts. I store these bars in the fridge. They are so good cold they taste just like a Reese’s peanut butter cup! The bars can even be frozen for up to 3 months! Enjoy!

  • 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!

    Do these have to be refrigerated AFTER they are completed?

  • Hi Dianne,

    Yes they should be kept in the refrigerator after they are completed.



  • 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!

  • Jill

    Wondering if anyone has tried with crunchy peanut butter.

  • 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.
