Double peanut butter bars that require NO BAKING! This easy no-bake dessert recipe is one of the easiest ways to get your peanut butter fix!
Sometimes you get a craving for something and you can’t stop until you’ve had it. That’s how these no-bake Double Peanut Butter Bars were born.
I have been craving Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs like crazy lately. Maybe it’s because there are approximately 1000 gagillion copycat recipes for peanut butter eggs on the internet and they’re showing up in every social media feed known to man.
Thanks Easter, for making me crave my nemesis.
I do not let myself buy Peanut Butter Eggs (the large or the mini kind) because if I did it would be a really bad, bad thing. The last time I bought a bag of mini Reese’s Peanut Butter filled eggs, I ate the entire bag in just a few days.
Yes, I said just a few days.
I don’t think I was born with willpower.
Anyway, last week I needed peanut butter eggs but I didn’t want to buy any. Then I remembered these peanut butter pretzel bars. And then I was craving those, too. But I didn’t want chocolate.
So instead of buying myself a bag something I’d inhale, I made these double peanut butter bars and ate half the pan in a day.
Literally, I cannot be trusted around peanut butter desserts.
These no-bake double peanut butter bars seriously taste like the inside of the peanut butter cup.
Since I always peel the chocolate off the peanut butter cups anyway and save the center for last, these are perfect for me. Tell me you do that too?
I used graham crackers for my binder instead of pretzels in this recipe. That gives these more of that gritty peanut butter feeling you get when eating a Reese’s. And instead of making them into eggs or truffles, I just made them into bars. #lazywins
Then, since I wasn’t in the mood for milk or semi-sweet chocolate ganache, I topped them with a white chocolate peanut butter coating.
All peanut butter, all the time. DOUBLE peanut butter bars.
If I had an Easter basket full of double peanut butter bars, I would not be unhappy.
I guess I’ll just have to make them again… 🙂

No-Bake Double Peanut Butter Bars
- 8 tablespoons unsalted Challenge Butter melted
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
- 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter divided
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- Line a 9x13” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
- Place melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and 3/4 cup peanut butter in a large bowl. Mix by hand until combined. Press firmly into prepared pan.
- Place white chocolate chips and remaining 2 tablespoons peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on 50% power in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Pour over bars and spread with a spatula to evenly coat.
- Chill for at least 1 hour to set, slice into bars. **It’s best to slice them at room temperature so your chocolate doesn’t shatter.**
- These can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator, depending on how warm your house is. The chocolate will get melty if it’s too hot, so use your judgement on where you should store them.

I have made these peanutbutter bar s alot my family loves them
This recipe is completely off. The peanut butter made the chocolate chips chalky and they burned and there is nowhere near enough of the graham cracker mix for a 9×13 pan. Am I missing something?
When melting white chocolate, that sometimes happens. White chocolate is so finicky! Make sure you’re heating on 50% power in 30 second increments, stirring between each. The oil in the PB should help the white chocolate melt evenly if you do it slowly. And they will fit in a 9×13 pan, if you want a thicker bar use a 9×9 pan.
I can’t wait to try these. I think I’ll try it with a peanut butter marshmallow frosting!
These were ok I think I would use less graham cracker crumbs tho next time and more peanut butter. They were kind of dry and crumbly and I wanted a more smoother consistency. Also the 9×13 was way too big for this recipe I agree with the other reviews and use a 9×9 pan instead
Really good but I used a 9×9 pan instead. Would not recommend a 9×13. Also I added a little bit of vanilla extract and used dark chocolate instead of white.
These were yummy, but do not use a 9×13 pan, it must be a typo. They turned out as thin as a cracker, barely covering the bottom of the pan. A small square pan would have been better.
These taste exactly like Reeses peanut butter cups! I made these for a dinner party but my husband and I ate the entire pan within a few days and I ended up having to make another batch! They are amazing and I will be making them again for our next party.
Love this recipe..it is great to make for get together..the kids love this cookie bars..
This bar recipe turned out fantastic!
But, instead of the white chocolate chips (because we didn’t have any left…white chocolate in our house is gone in a nano-second!), my kids and I put a layer of strawberry jam on top.
With the jam, it is so delectable, sort of like a fancy PB&J!
Everyone ate slices of it immediately, their smiles proved they loved it.
And the fact that the pan was empty pretty quick.
Just wanted you to know we love all your recipes, and this one is a for-sure-keeper!
I was curious about using chocolate graham crumbs instead of regular….i have more chocolate than i do honey graham
