Peanut Butter Bars
These Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars are a classic recipe that your whole family will love! Easy to make, six ingredients, and melt in your mouth good!
Servings: 24 bars
- 3 cups graham cracker crumbs 14.4 ounces or 408 grams
- 1 cup unsalted butter melted
- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar 10 ounces
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips 6 ounces
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
Using a food processor, grind the graham crackers to a fine crumb. (If you don't have a food processor, you could put the crackers in a sealable plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.)
In a large bowl stir together the crumbs, 1 cup melted butter, sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla. It may be difficult to mix at first but will come together to be a thick dough.
Press the dough into a 9 by 13 inch pan that has been sprayed with non stick spray.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine the remaining 8 tablespoons butter and chocolate. Cook for 1 minute, at half power, stir very well. Microwave in 15 second intervals stirring very well in between until smooth. Pour over bars. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour before cutting.
