Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

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

Ingredients
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

Topping
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
4-1/2 teaspoons creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon butter

Directions
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.

    Every year I make Mexican Wedding cookies.  They are so easy to make and my family starts asking for them after Thanksgiving.  Sugar cookies that my kids can decorate are also a big hit with my family!

    I make No Bake cookies every year for all of my friends, family and co-workers.  They are a huge hit and soooo easy to make.

    For those allergic to Chocolate, betting the Butterscotch CHIPS, would taste really good.

    I make this same recipe every year. But for the topping I just melt the chocolate flavored Almond Bark  and pour on top.    So much easier and taste great!!

    I make this too, but I roll the filling into 1″ balls and dip them into the chocolate. Then I place them in little paper candy cups and they look like expensive chocolates! LOL
