  • 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

Chocolate Topping

  • 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.
