Recipe by cookiemaker

These taste JUST like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and are so easy to make! There are a lot of similar recipes, with slightly different amounts of (mostly) the same ingredients, but this is the one that I really like.

Absolutely delicious! I made these for my Christmas Eve cookie tray. They were a hit with my of the first things from the tray to disappear :). I liked them even better than store-bought Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Best of all, they were quick and easy to make, with no baking required. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I can't wait to serve these again this Christmas!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and peanut butter. (an easy way to measure the peanut butter is to put 1 cup of water into a measuring cup, and then add enough peanut butter to it that the water reaches 2 cups).
  2. Press mixture into a 9x13" pan.
  3. Melt chocolate chips in microwave and stir until smooth (try a minute first, and then check).
  4. Spread chocolate carefully over peanut butter layer with a spatula. (Having one person to pour the chocolate and one to spread works well!).
  5. Let the chocolate cool for a while, and then cut into bars before the chocolate is completely hardened (or else the chocolate layer will just crack).
  6. (cooking time is cooling time, and it's a very rough estimate, I didn't keep track).
