No Bake Peanut Butter Bars (Your taste buds will love this, but your diet won’t)

Let me start by saying that if I could marry peanut butter…I would.

I found this recipe on the Six Sister's’ Stuff blog awhile back. My son likes peanut butter just as much as I do so we decided to try this easy recipe out (with a few alterations of our own).


  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups cinnamon graham crackers crumbs
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup and 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips


Using a meat mallet, we took out all our aggressions on these defenseless graham crackers until they were granules. We left a few just a little chunky for that extra crunch.

(We used 18 graham cracker rectangles to get just a little over 2 cups of crumbs.)



With the butter already melted in the mixing bowl, we threw in the graham crackers, powdered sugar and 1 cup of peanut butter then mixed it together.


Spread the mixture into a 9x13 pan. If you want a thicker bar, you can use a 9x9 square pan instead.


Melt the milk chocolate chips with the 1/2 cup peanut butter in the microwave. Stir every 30 seconds until the mixture is smooth.


Spread the chocolate/peanut butter mixture evenly over the peanut butter layer then refrigerate.


Now comes the hard part…


Wait at least an hour for the layers to solidify…



Everyone I have introduced this peanut butter bar to has fallen in love with it.  :)

If you try this recipe out, leave a comment and let me know what you think. :)
