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.

Cravings #FTW

Like the inside of a peanut butter cup, these double peanut butter bars are easy, no-bake, and come together in minutes. Topped with peanut butter white chocolate these bars are a super peanut buttery recipe!

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.

Wait.

Easy No-Bake Double Peanut Butter Bars

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.

Like the inside of a peanut butter cup, these EASY Double Peanut Butter Bars are no-bake and come together in minutes. Topped with peanut butter white chocolate these bars are a super peanut buttery recipe!

I guess I’ll just have to make them again… 🙂

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Line a 9x13” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.**
  5. 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.

  1. Hi Dorothy~ These bars look wonderful, but I have a Coeliac to consider and would hate to leave them out. Do you think it would be possible to sub GF rice krispies for the graham crackers? 

  2. Love peanut butter bars, thanks

  3. Do you know if these will work if I use natural peanut butter? (The kind that separates). Thank you for your advice!

  4. I’m sorry to say, these didn’t impress me. Don’t like the crackers mixed with peanut butter & the pan you said to use, was too big, 9×13 ,so they were very flat.

  5. Forgive me, for I have sinned.

    I changed the recipe. Gasp.

    Seriously though, I added a layer of homemade strawberry rhubarb preserves between the layers. Oh. My. Goodness. Like a PB & J on steroids.

  6. Can you please confirm the size of the pan you use? It says 9×13 but in your video it looks smaller. Other people have commented about the size but I did not see a response. I want to make these this weekend. Thank you.

  7. These were amazing!
    Accidentally bought cinnamon graham crackers, but they still worked very well.

  8. The taste is good but dry and crumbly.

  9. My whole family devoured them!  Thank you for the delicious recipe!
