How have I lived nearly 40 years on this earth and never heard of this recipe? Seriously. I remember when I was a kid, my mom had those peanut butter cup shaped candy molds. They certainly made for delicious and fun peanut butter cup like treats, but I always thought they were so much work. But these peanut butter cup bars are the easiest thing I’ve ever made. When a sudden chocolate craving strikes, I can whip these bars up faster than I can run to the corner convenience store for a candy bar.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars
- 1 cup butter melted
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 cup + 4 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners’ sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan. In a metal bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with 4 tablespoons peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the peanut butter layer. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.
