Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

I have a love/hate relationship with candy. I love it so much I eat it until I get sick or inhale way too many calories. My favorite candies are M&Ms, 3 Musketeer Bars and my ultimate favorite are Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The one thing I like more than Reese’s however are homemade peanut butter bars. They are like Reese’s but so much better. My mom used to make these every once in a while and I loved them!

The recipe is actually pretty easy. The only difficult part is getting the chocolate to the right consistency without burning it. Just pay careful attention when you are making them and you should be fine.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
adapted from What A Dish!

1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
1 packet whole graham crackers, crushed into fine crumbs
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter

In the bowl of a stand mixer or a large with a hand mixer combine the 2 sticks of butter, graham crackers, confectioner’s sugar and crunchy peanut butter. Mix until it is totally worked together and fluffy. Press into a greased 9×13 pan and set aside.

In a medal or glass bowl set on top of simmering (not boiling) water melt the chocolate chips, creamy peanut butter and butter together. Stirring occasionally. It should be easy to pour but not burned.

Pour it onto the graham cracker crust and spread over the entire crust.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving and store, covered in the fridge if you happen to have any left.
