No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter BarsJust beat, melt, stir and refrigerate — these bars are just that simple.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 cups peanut butter* - divided use
3/4 cup butter or margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
3 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups (12 ounce package) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels - divided use

Cooking Directions:

  1. Beat 1 1/4 cups peanut butter and butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in 1 cup powdered sugar. With hands or wooden spoon, work in remaining powdered sugar, graham cracker crumbs and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Press mixture evenly and firmly into a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. (Note: Placing a sheet of plastic wrap or waxed paper over mixture will make an easier, more efficient and cleaner job of pressing the mixture into pan.)
  2. Melt remaining peanut butter and remaining chocolate chips in medium, heavy-duty saucepan over lowest possible heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Spread over graham cracker crust in pan. Chill for at least 1 hour or until chocolate is firm; cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.

Makes 60 bars.

*Natural peanut butter may be too dry for this recipe resulting in the bars having a crumbly texture, if using it may be necessary to add about 2 tablespoons butter or margarine in step 1.
