Prep 10 mins
Cook 1 hr
- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2⁄3 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup chocolate chips, melted (6 oz.)
- Combine everything but the chocolate chips, and press in a greased 8x8" pan.
- Spread melted chocolate chips over top with a spatula, covering entire surface. Chill 2 hours.
I also added marshmallows below the chocolate chips, made really awesome treats! Probably really fattening, probably really bad for you, rot your teeth out, etc. But, yum yum good! If you put them in the refrigerator though, they are hard to cut.
These are fantastic!!!! After I mix the peanut butter part together I chill the dough, take my melon ball scoop and make them into peanut butter balls. I then chill them again and dip the balls in the chocolate much easier (for me anyways;-) then cutting them into squares. It's also much easier for portion control too! Either way you wouldn't be sorry you made these. If you're a Reese's lover, as I am, you'll be in heaven. So what are you waiting for? Go get busy.
I make these all the time. I have found that it's best to use JIF peanut butter instead of the natural kind because it's stiffer/thicker. It's also better to use chocolate graham crackers. I find that using those two are important in making it tastes much like Reeses but also the texture holds up better. If anyone is having issues with their chocolate being too 'chocolately' simply melt a TB of peanut butter with it. Also, its fun to get creative with these. I've tried them in various shapes and sizes. One of my favorite, super easy treats!
