An easy no bake peanut butter bar loaded with Reese's pieces and topped with a layer of milk chocolate and peanut butter, and even more Reese's pieces!
Servings: 12 bars
- 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter melted
- pinch salt
- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs about 8 full sheets
- 2 cups (240 g) confectioners' (powdered) sugar
- 3/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons (215 g) creamy peanut butter (not natural style) divided
- 1 cup (180 g) dark or milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup Reese's Pieces
Line a 8x8 or 9x9 square baking pan with aluminum foil. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix the melted butter, salt, graham cracker crumbs, and powdered sugar together until combined. Stir in 3/4 cup of peanut butter. Spread into prepared baking pan.
In a small bowl, microwave 2 Tablespoons of peanut butter with the chocolate chips until melted. Stir until smooth. Spread over peanut butter layer. Top with additional Reese's pieces.
Chill until completely firm, at least 3 hours. Allow to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before cutting.
