Peanut Butter Cup Bars

YAY for a new favorite dessert!

I absolutely love love love peanut butter and Reese’s are my favorite chocolate candy! (I personally would chose a fruit candy but when there are no fruit options Reese’s is my go to candy) 

These are basically giant Reese’s peanut butter cups!


½ cup butter
1¾ cup powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
¾ cup crushed graham crackers
¼ cup butter
½ cup milk chocolate chips

Line an 8x8 baking dish with foil that has extra that hangs over the sides. Spray the foil with cooking spray.

Melt the ½ cup butter over low heat in a medium sauce pan. Turn off the heat and stir in the 1¾ cup powdered sugar till smooth.  

Add the 1 cup peanut butter and ¾ cups of crushed graham crackers to the mixture. (I chose not to crush the graham crackers into a powder and left some chunks – a little texture!)

Once mixed thoroughly spread the peanut butter mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Try to smooth it best as possible.

Using the same saucepan melt ¼ cup butter. Add ½ cup chocolate chips and stir till almost melted. Pull off heat and continue stirring till completely melted.

Pour chocolate on top of peanut butter mixture and smooth.

Put in the fridge to cool for at least 30 minutes.

Once cooled, cut and enjoy :]

I made these for dessert with friends last week and for Tasty Thursday today at work. Hope y’all like these yummy treats!
