Homemade Peanut Butter Bars

Home Made No Bake PB Bars

Ok, those who actually know me, I’m mildly allergic to peanut, but I really wanted peanut butter – enough so it won’t kill me! 🙂 Then, with tons of leftover peanut butter, I didn’t know what to do that was quick and simple.. so, I stumbled upon some easy dessert bar recipes that requires no baking! Fantastic! I modified my recipe from Kraft Recipes

1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup graham cracker
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup Peanut Butter plus 2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup milk chocolate – I used baking chocolate, and it was quite bitter. Try chocolate chips!

This is an easy recipe! I don’t do a lot of baking as I’m not good at baking! So, this recipe was right up my alley! First, you melt the butter – once melted, pour the graham cracker, sugar and 1/2 cup of peanut butter.

Now, take this peanut butter mixture and press it into a container where you want to make your bars. Pack it in tight and hard if possible.

Now, you can either melt the chocolate in the microwave, but I did mine on a double broiler. You do this by taking a pot and filling it with some water – and bringing it up to a boil. Then, place a bowl that’s larger than the opening of the pot over the top of the pot. Now, you can melt your chocolate on that surface on top – never allowing any water into the mixing bowl.

Once the chocolate is completely smooth and melted, stir in the 2 tbsp of peanut butter in and mix until complete smooth and mixed

Now, you can pour this chocolate topping on top of the peanut butter bars and smooth the chocolate topping so it covers the entire dessert. Now, we have to refrigerate for at least 3 hours to set!

Now that your bars have set, it’s time to cut it up and enjoy!
