Tuesdays at the Table - Reese's Peanut Butter Bars

Happy Tuesday! I hope you're all having a great week and that you'll share one a recipe that you really enjoy - or one you just found and are trying for the first time.  :-)

This week I'm sharing one of my favorite recipes.  It's been a family favorite for YEARS and I could probably make it in my sleep.  In fact, we had a family gathering on Saturday and I made these yummy little bars, hoping that there would be a few leftover so I could hide them and indulge in a midnight snack.  No such luck!  My mom's cousin met me at the front door of her house, asked what I made and then started sampling before they even made it to the kitchen.  I think my "dessert" turned into a "pre-meal snack" for everyone.  I'd like to say it's because I'm that good of a cook...but I know it's because no one in their right mind can say no to these bars!

Reese Peanut Butter Bars

2 sticks butter
1 cup peanut butter (I don't the recommend low-fat version)
1 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
12 oz. (1 bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the margarine. Stir in peanut butter, powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs. {Note: This works best if the powdered sugar isn't mixed in last.} Pour out and flatten into a greased 9x13 pan. Refrigerate for about an hour.

Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Pour out chocolate over the cooled peanut butter bars, covering evenly.

Refrigerate for about an hour and cut into bars.

What's cooking in your kitchen this week?



  1. OMG, why are you doing this to me?!! I WANT!! Totally drooling all over my keyboard now. :)

  2. OMG! I need to make this. I'm a sucker for any PB and chocolate combo.


I LOVE comments! Tell me what you're thinking. :-)
