I’m starting on my holiday baking today. One of the staples I always whip up, which ironically is a “no-bake” dessert, are Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares. If you’re a fan of Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups, you’ve got to try this recipe!
What do you like to bake during the holidays? Do you have any favorites that everyone looks forward to?
Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter (I prefer crunchy – Use what you like)
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs (I use the pre-smashed crackers from Honey Maid)
1/2 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
4-1/2 teaspoons creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon butter
Line a 9-in. square pan with foil and butter the foil; set aside. In a large bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs and butter. Spread into prepared pan.
Combine topping ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl; heat until melted. Spread over peanut butter layer. Refrigerate until cool. Using foil, left out of pan. Cut into 1-in. squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: 1-1/2 pounds.
