No Bake chocolate peanut butter bars


The Preppy Strawberry - Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars


With the Super Bowl and Valentines Day fast approaching today, I’m going to share with you an easy No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter bars!  You only need 5 ingredients… Yes I said 5 ingredients!  It’s been while since I’ve made these bars but after being cooped up the past few weeks, I was craving something sweet!  I made these this weekend and they were a hit!  I guess, you can say we are all craving comfort food – good thing for my spinning class I’m heading to later – Time to burn off all these treats! 

I love anything No Bake and these Chocolate Peanut Bars seriously taste just like a Reese Cup.   You will need some will power  – hard to just eat one! 


The Preppy Strawberry Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars Recipe



  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups graham crackers (crushed in a food processor)  I use about 2 packages of graham crackers
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup + 4T reduced fat creamy peanut butter (or regular peanut butter I just used the reduced fat)
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips = one bag of chips


  1. Mix together the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered  sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter – mix until well blended
  2. press mixture into bottom of 13 X 9 pan – ungreased
  3. microwave your chocolate chips with the 4T of peanut butter.  Stir every 30 seconds until melted
  4. spread the melted chocolate over top of the graham cracker layer
  5. refrigerate for at least an hour – I find that it’s better to allow 2 hours for the bars to completely set.
