No-Bake Peanut Butter-Chocolate Bars

These outstanding, five-star cookies taste exactly like Reeses Peanut Butter Cups - if not 
What foods these morsels be! Delectable - and easy.

better! I’ve slightly modified the original recipe (from Cruising Cuisine, by Kay Pastorius, 1997).

No-Bake Peanut Butter-Chocolate Bars:

1 c. graham cracker crumbs
2-1/2 c. icing sugar 
1/2 c. melted butter or margarine 
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. creamy peanut butter (do not use natural)
2 c. chocolate chips, melted

To a large bowl, add graham crumbs, icing sugar, butter or margarine, vanilla, and peanut butter, combining well with clean hands or gloves. Press evenly into ungreased 9x13-in. (23x33 cm) baking pan. Place in refrigerator, uncovered, 10-to-15 min. to harden. 

Pour melted chocolate over top, swirling evenly and gently, ensuring chocolate touches edges of pan. Chocolate will be thin, but sufficient. Refrigerate, uncovered, about 15 min. or until chocolate is firm (but not fully hardened) before slicing into bars. Return to fridge, chilling until chocolate hardens completely. Makes 32. 

Finger Lickin’ Note: Because this is such an incredibly delicious bar cookie, the recipe yields just one serving!
