BEST Peanut Butter Bars Recipe

I have been craving White Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter cups a ton lately. I didn’t think I’d like them because I don’t love white chocolate, but once I tried them I couldn’t stop eating them. And this recipe was born!

I have several peanut butter bar recipes on this site, like peanut butter pretzel bars, made with pretzels, and Reese’s Bars made with Ritz crackers. I was out of both of those things so these double peanut butter bars are made with graham cracker crumbs – and topped with white chocolate just like my favorite candy. Peanut butter lovers are going to love this recipe!

Ingredients Needed

  • Peanut Butter – obviously!! I use a no-stir (not natural) peanut butter, like Skippy or Jif.
  • Graham Cracker Crumbs – you can crush sheets of graham crackers yourself in a food processor or with a rolling pin in a ziploc bag, or buy a box of crumbs. You want fine crumbs so they mix in evenly.
  • Powdered Sugar – We add this for sweetness and to help bind the mixture.
  • White Chocolate Chips – These will be the topping with a little extra peanut butter so they slice nicely – it’s what makes them taste like Reese’s peanut butter cups!

How to make Peanut Butter Bars

  • Mix melted butter and peanut butter in a large bowl. I used a hand mixer, but you can use a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  • Add graham cracker crumbs and confectioners’ sugar and mix until combined.
  • Press peanut butter mixture into a 9×9-inch pan lined with foil.
  • Melt the white chocolate and remaining peanut butter in a medium bowl and spread over the top of the peanut butter layer. Chill to set the chocolate layer.

Expert Tips

  • For thinner bars you can use a 9×13-inch pan, but I like them thick.
  • Be sure to line your pan with foil or parchment paper for easy removal.
  • It’s best to heat white chocolate chips at 50% power and stir after every 30 seconds so you don’t burn it.
  • You can also use chunky peanut butter if you want.

  1. I’m confused on the size of pan to use. The video shows an 8×8 or 9×9 pan but the instructions say to use a 9×13. Can you please clarify this for me? Thank you for your reply.
