Simpatico: Peanut Butter No-Bake Bars

Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Peanut Butter No-Bake Bars

Someone looking through my blog asked if I had really made all the things shown and those were the pictures. I told them "yes, but for ever recipe that is perfection and beautiful, I have 3 or more failures that lead to it." When those failures happen, I resort to making something with peanut butter to make my little man happier than when he was trying to swallow something he just didn't like!

Yeah, so here is my new peanut butter recipe to make up for the smoked sausage penne pasta catastrophe.

No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
(adapted from here)
*2 cups creamy peanut butter, divided
*3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
*2 cups powdered sugar, divided
*3 cups graham cracker crumbs
*1 1/2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels, divided

Grease 11x7-inch baking pan.

Beat 1 1/4 cups peanut butter and all of the butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in 1 cup powdered sugar. With a wooden spoon, work in remaining 1 cup powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Press evenly into prepared baking pan. Smooth top with spatula.

Melt remaining 3/4 cup peanut butter and chocolate morsels in a microwave safe bowl, on half power for 45 seconds. Remove from the microwave, stir and return to the microwave for an additional 20 seconds at half power until the mixture is melted and smooth. Spread over graham cracker crust in pan. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until chocolate is firm. Cut into bars. Store in covered container in refrigerator.
