Peanut Butter Bars #SundaySupper

Peanut Butter Bars are the perfect combination of peanut butter and chocolate. I love to make them and take them to potlucks and family gatherings.

This recipe is a classic for many years and it’s easy to see why. Who doesn’t love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate? I found this recipe in an old Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that I received over 20 years ago. I don’t have the cookbook anymore, but I did keep this recipe.

It’s a great recipe for when you need to take an easy dessert to a family function or a potluck. This is especially good for Summer potlucks because it doesn’t need to be refrigerated at all times and can handle heat pretty well.

I take a bit of a shortcut in this recipe and I use prepackaged graham cracker crumbs. I know you can make your own with a food processor, but I always keep the packaged type on hand and it saves me tons of time and mess.



Peanut Butter Bars #SundaySupper
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 cup plus 4 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
  • 1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. In a medium-sized bowl combine the butter, graham cracker crumbs, sugar and 1 cup of peanut butter. Mix until well combined. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 pan.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips with the 4 tbsp. of peanut butter until smooth.
  3. Spread over the peanut butter layer. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Take out of the fridge for at least an hour before serving. This will help to soften the bars and make them easier to cut and remove from the pan.
