Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars

It's Day eight in our 12 Days of Christmas Baking series (thank goodness, because we're just about sugared out around here!) I tried these Reese's Peanut Butter Bars over the weekend and they were just perfect.   I found the recipe at All Recipes (love that place!) and while I tweaked it a bit with what we had on hand, they were simply delicious.

They keep best in the fridge, and you can choose to either use milk chocolate or semi sweet chocolate to top them with . . . either way I'm betting your family will love every last bite.  I can't believe it's taken me this many years to find these, but oh my heavens we'll be making them again soon!




  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup peanut butter, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips or semi sweet chocolate chips


  1. Combine first three ingredients in mixer on medium speed, then add in 1 cup of the peanut butter.
  2. Spread evenly over the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 pan.
  3. In small bowl, melt together chocolate and remaining 1/4 cup peanut butter in microwave fpr 30 seconds.
  4. Stir peanut butter and chocolate chips. If chips do not melt, cook in microwave an additional 10 seconds at a time until melted.
  5. Pour over the peanut butter mixture.
  6. Refrigerate at least 3 hours, or overnight.

    My family loves these. For a saltier treat, use crushed pretzels instead of the graham cracker crumbs.
