Peanut Butter Chocolate Bites

Some of you might remember those delicious peanut butter chocolate squares they gave us for dessert in elementary school. I couldn’t wait for the day we had that for dessert. So delicious! This is a simple recipe for those squares, but without all the chemicals I’m sure they used in the ones at school. They taste a lot better to me (didn’t know that would be possible!)  The best part about these: NO BAKE!!!! You do have to melt the butter and chocolate, but you could probably use a microwave for that if you wanted.


2 sticks butter

1 cup creamy peanut butter

2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 36 graham cracker squares pre crushing)

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 bag (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large saucepan, melt the butter on low. Once melted remove from heat and sitr in peanut butter until smooth. Add graham cracker crumbs and sugar until everything is well mixed. Press mixture into an ungreased 9″x13″ pan. Set aside. Melt chocolate chips over boiling water (I just fill a big pan with water and float a metal bowl with the chips in the boiling water-just be sure to use a pot holder when you grab the bowl out of the water). Pour chocolate over peanut butter and spread it around evenly (you can even make a design in the chocolate if you are feeling creative!).  Put the pan in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until the chocolate is mostly set. Cut into squares and enjoy! 🙂
