Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

These Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars are a heavenly combination of creamy peanut butter and rich chocolate, layered over a crunchy graham cracker base. They are incredibly easy to make and are perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth cravings. Here’s how to whip up these delicious treats.


  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups creamy natural peanut butter (preferably no sugar added), divided
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preparing the Base:
    • In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and 1 cup of peanut butter. Stir until the mixture is well combined.
    • Spread this mixture evenly in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan to form the base layer of the bars.
  2. Creating the Chocolate Layer:
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips with the remaining 1 cup of peanut butter. You can do this in the microwave, stirring occasionally to ensure the mixture is smooth and evenly combined.
    • Once melted and mixed, spread this chocolate-peanut butter mixture evenly over the cracker crumb base in the pan.
  3. Chilling the Bars:
    • The most challenging part is waiting for the bars to firm up. Place the pan in the refrigerator to speed up the chilling process.
  4. Cutting the Bars:
    • Once the mixture is firm, cut it into 54 bars. You can adjust the size of the bars to your preference.
  5. Storing:
    • Store these peanut butter chocolate bars in the refrigerator or freezer. They make a great snack or dessert and are perfect for when you need a quick sweet treat.
