No Bake Peanut Butter Bars ~ July 29, 2016

The other day I was watching Food Network's Pioneer Woman - Ree Drummond.

I knew from the moment I saw her make those peanut butter bars, that I'd want the recipe for my very own collection.

Simple. Quick. Sweet. NO BAKE.

Can you even go wrong with that combination?!

So, yesterday I actually made the recipe, and I was absolutely NOT disappointed. Nor was my family.


This is the perfect recipe to bring for a family get together, a picnic, a holiday or even to stash in the back of the fridge for your desperate, late night sweets craving! I shared some with friends, and they even suggested that it was equally delicious as a frozen treat. (I was kind of thinking the same thing, but I hadn't gotten to trying that yet!)

Go ahead and try them for yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed, and you'll want to make these again and again!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars

Yield: 20 bars


2 sticks salted butter, softened, plus more for greasing the pan
1 cup chunky peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
One 12-ounce box vanilla wafers
One 12-ounce bag mini semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
Add Checked Items To Grocery List


For the filling: Grease a 9-by-13-inch pan with some butter.

Using a stand or electric hand mixer, mix together the butter and chunky peanut butter until smooth. Stir in the sugar a cup at a time.

Add the vanilla wafers to a food processor and process until they are in small chunks. Then add the wafers and mini chocolate chips to the peanut butter mixture. Spread it evenly into the buttered pan and set aside.

For the frosting: Using a double boiler or a microwave, melt the chocolate chips and creamy peanut butter. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes, then pour over the base. Spread the frosting out evenly and sprinkle over the chopped peanuts. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, then cut into 20 bars.
