No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars

Not overly sweet, and there’s just the tiniest hint of crunch in these peanut butter bars from the graham cracker crumbs. Also, the topping is smooth, creamy chocolate, blended with just a little bit more peanut butter. Think of them as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups on another level.

Total Time

15 Minutes


115g of unsalted butter, melted
125g of graham cracker crumbs, approximately 8 full-sheet graham crackers

Line an 8in x 8in (20 cm x 20cm) pan with aluminium foil or parchment paper and set it aside.
