Onto the Peanut Butter Bars Recipe with Printable Recipe Card:
No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
- 1 bag Kettle Brand chips
- 1 c peanut butter
- 1 1/2 c powdered sugar
- 12 Tbsp butter melted
- 1 1/2 c milk chocolate chips
- 1/4 c peanut butter regular, not natural
- Using a food processor or a tightly sealed bag and mallet, crush chips and pour into a large mixing bowl.
- Mix 1 c peanut butter, powdered sugar and butter into the crushed chips. Pour into 9x9" pan. I line mine with parchment paper, but they come out easily, even when ungreased.
- Combine chocolate chips and ¼ c peanut butter. Microwave in 15 second intervals until smooth. Pour over the chip mixture, using a spatula to smooth.
- Refrigerate at least 2 hours and serve chilled.
You can cut butter down to 8 Tbsp if you wish.
Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
