No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

These are so quick and easy and chances are you may have all the ingredients in your pantry already because it is only 5 simple ingredients.I only have natural peanut butter in the house, so even though it is creamy it does have a little texture to it because it is JUST PEANUTS compared to the other peanut butters that have oils and sugars added to them. Read your label, you might be surprised at what is in your peanut butter. Even ones that say "Natural" might have other ingredients other than peanuts. Peanut butter only needs to be peanuts.

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

1 C butter, melted
2 C graham cracker crumbs
2 C powdered sugar
1 C creamy peanut butter

3 T creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Melt your butter and turn you graham crackers in to crumbs
  • Mix together butter, graham crackers, sugar and peanut butter
  • Press in to the bottom of a 13x9 pan
  • Melt peanut butter and chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave - if using the microwave put it in for 30 seconds and remove and stir and keep adding another 30 seconds and stirring until it is melted and smooth, mine was in there for a total of 1 1/2 minutes
  • Spread chocolate over the crust
  • Place in the refrigerator to cool and set for at least an hour
  • Enjoy!

Kinda like lazy peanut butter balls...i might try these but swap out the graham crackers with rice krispies like my peanut butter balls recipe. And if i get adventurous, i'll replace the chocolate chips with white chocolate chips.

What a great snack for kids to make! We make our own peanut butter- we buy a sack of peanuts and make it in 1kg batches in our Magimix. Much, much cheaper, and no additives. The taste is fresher than store bought natural nut butters too.

I haven't made my own peanut butter yet. I was just thinking about a Kids in the Kitchen At-Home Summer camp week for my kids and we should make our own PB. I plan to try making our own cheese.
Thanks for the idea.
