Easy No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup melted salted butter
  • 1 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 12 oz bag milk chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients, except for chocolate chips. Stir until creamy.
  2. Press mixture into a 9x9 inch pan.
  3. Melt chocolate chips (I use the microwave at half power for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes). Stir and spread over the peanut butter mixture. Tapping the pan on the counter will help even out the chocolate.
  4. Refrigerate for about an hour.
  5. Cut and serve.
