I used petit beurre biscuits, which are sweet, and skippy peanut butter, which is also sweet, so I didn't add any sugar at all. The result was heavenly! I actually liked that my biscuit crumbs were a bit chunky, it added some crunch to the peanut butter. Only one problem, though - it's really hard to stop eating this!!!
These were very good and had a very similar flavor to Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. Just a couple of notes...the graham crackers have to be VERY FINE! I used a rolling pin to crush them and then put them through a flour sifter. Next time I make these, I will put them in a food processor after putting them through the flour sifter. I used the 1 cup of peanut butter recommended. I thought it was great but my husband thought that we should use less next time (I really like the peanut taste but he usually wants less.) The only other change that I made was the chocolate. I used dark chocolate instead of milk and melted it in a double boiler to avoid burning. Overall, great recipe!
So easy and SO delicious. I chopped my graham crackers in my chopper, and though they were fairly finely chopped, the bars still have a crunchy texture. But I personally think it adds to their charm! I also added about a half teaspoon of vanilla to my peanut butter mixture. Absolutely perfect!
We loved this!! I made it as written but used semi-sweet chocolate chips. I made up a few gift baskets of cookies, fruit cake and these yummy bars. Everyone wanted the recipe. These will be made often. A real keeper!
Yummy!!! I took these to a Christmas Eve party and they were completely devoured. Everyone who tasted them thought they were very similar to Reese's peanut butter cups. Not only were these peanut butter bars delicious, but they were so easy to make. I loved that they were "no-bake", so I was able to whip them up in a hurry. I crushed my graham cracker crumbs in a food processor, and sifted the powdered sugar. Also, I used a natural no-stir, no-sugar added creamy peanut butter. These were rich, but oh so good!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!!

these are super especially when you dont want to make large amounts and I find that we don't miss all the sugar. Thanks for a 5 star recipe! I apoligise if the stars don't appear but once again I am a little computer illiterated.
I am a HUGE fan of reese peanut butter cups. I think this recipe comes very very close to the real thing. The only issue I had was the peanut butter mixture was crumbling off the chocolate. Perhaps next time I'll add a layer of chocolate to the bottom (oh darn, more chocolate :) )
Yummy!! Easy, quick and super yummy. Tastes almost exactly like the real thing.
very quick and very easy when you have a serious case of the munchies on pms day LOL
Just made it and let my son help. For a little added sin, we threw some green m and m's onto the top, for St. Patty's day. :) Great time with my son and great reactions! THANKS for the terrific, easy idea...btw, I used Healthy Choice and it turned out AAAA-ok!
