No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

April 16, 2012

This is a great recipe to make with your kids because it doesn’t require any baking, dangerous cooking tools etc.  My 3.5 year love to help me make this one (and eat it!)  We have a weakness for peanut butter in our family and this recipe takes care of any Peanut Butter Cup cravings! ~Carol

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter (or margarine, whatever you have)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (light or dark, again whatever you have)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 2- 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients except the chocolate chips in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave until butter and peanut butter are melted, one to two minutes (time will vary by microwave).
  2. Remove from microwave and use a large spoon to stir all of the ingredients together until they form a ball of dough that leaves the side of the bowl. Pat into a 9×13 pan.
  3. Pour chocolate chips into another microwave safe bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until completely melted. Spoon over top of peanut butter mixture and spread evenly.
  4. Allow to cool completely at room temperature until chocolate hardens again or place in the refrigerator for faster hardening. Cut into squares and serve to some awfully happy people!
