Easy peasy chocolate bars with a creamy chocolate topping. Kind of like a buckeye ball without all the work!


  • 1 cup butter or margarine, melted

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs

  • 2 cups powdered sugar

  • 1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or smooth

  • 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter


  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together butter or margarine, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13″ baking pan. In the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, melt the chocolate chips with the 4 tablespoons peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread on top of the mixture in the baking pan. Refrigerate for about 1 hour before cutting into bars.

So similar to Buckeye Balls but the graham crackers make a big difference. Also, less time consuming than balls.

very good, but I did do a little different, instead of 1 c peanut butter, I actually melted the margarine and 2 c peanut butter chips over stove cooled a bit then added conf sugar and graham crackers, seemed to form better and easier to cut

These are wonderful, but for a variation, after you add the melted chocolate, try rough chopping some Reese's pieces and sprinkling on top. (pretty for Thanksgiving) Also is good with finely chopped salted peanuts or walnuts.

By using Milk Chocolate Chips, instead of Semi-Sweet, these bars taste very similiar to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Amazing!!

I added 1/4 cup more peanut butter to the crust and it was awesome. Am making more tonight. Using on Christmas Trays of goodies I give away each year.

The bottoms are a bit crumbly, but they taste great and are super easy to make. Mixing the PB, graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar is an arm workout, for sure! I found that lightly running the knife over the chocolate into squares that you will later cut the bars into, before putting in the fridge, makes cutting up the bars a lot easier.

This is THE BOMB!!!!!! I couldn't keep up with them eating all of them!!

I found lining the pan with foil and removing it to cut into squares worked much better. Also, before putting in the frige for the hour, let them cool for a bit on the counter then partly cutting them into squares also helped to cut better when they were totally cooled.

I made several batches of these over the holiday. They were a big hit. I even mailed some to family and they held up very well. Everyone is asking for the recipe! They are easy and delicious.
