Chocolate Peanut Butter 'Crack' Bars

Wendy Rusch


Like the name says, they're like Crack...highly addictive!!! lol

When I found this recipe, I knew I had to make them...I changed up some things, then went at 'em!!! OMGosh YUM!!! And they are No Bake!!! How great is that in the summer time? Great for a bake sale too!!! This recipe makes a large 12x17 pan full, but you could easily cut it into thirds and use an 8x8 pan.

A peanut buttery, rich, creamy bottom layer...very similar to the famous pb cup filling.
And the top is chocolaty and peanut buttery with crispies.

This recipe was inspired by The Midnight Baker,

How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter 'Crack' Bars


  1. Line an 11x17 or 12x17 pan with foil, spray and set aside.

    Bottom Layer: In a large bowl, combine butter, graham crumbs, peanut butter and powdered sugar, stirring well to combine. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Chill for at least 1 hour. I placed the pan in freezer for 30 minutes, cause I'm impatient like that.
  2. Top Layer: In a large glass bowl place milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Microwave for 1 minute, stir...microwave for 15 second, stir and continue at 15 second intervals, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Place krispies in another large bowl, pour chocolate mixture over top and stir gently to combine.
    Spread krispie mixture over bottom layer. Again place in frig or freezer to set up, approx 1 hour.
  3. Remove bars from pan by foil overlaps. Cut into desired size and enjoy!

    Keep Refrigerated in a covered container.

    And remember, you can cut this recipe into thirds and make an 8x8 pan.
