With these hot days, No Bake goodies is the only way to go!
These tasty peanut butter, chocolate, graham bars were introduced to me at a meeting many decades ago. The baker was inundated with pleas for the recipe.Happily she shared. This was in the deep south. It has made the rounds by now, but I have only seen other recipes that call for more sugar, or butter. This recipe is rich enough. It doesn't need 'more'. Unless, it is to make 'more' so that everyone gets some! Kids and adults alike love these. Hope you do too.

Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c
    butter, melted
  • 2 c
    graham cracker crumbs
  • 12 oz
    peanut butter (traditional works better than all natural).
  • 2 c
    confectioners' sugar
  • 1 bag(s)
    (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to Make Incredible Edibles

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix first four ingredients. (All but chocolate chips)
    Beat until thoroughly mixed and crumbly.

    Press into a greased 9x13 inch pan.
  2. Melt chocolate chips and spread evenly over graham mixture.

    Let Stand until chocolate hardens.

    Cut into small squares.
  3. Cookies are rich. Small squares are just the right bite.

    These freeze well. To store, place in a sealed container. To keep to yourself, make sure container says 'yogurt" (the big ones) 'shortening', or 'wheat bran'.

    Disclaimer: The above suggestion honestly comes from someone else who loves these madly!!

    For Guten Free bars: Use gluten free graham crackers, and make sure all ingredients are GF as well.
  4. NOTE: If you used natural peanut butter, I would try this: Mix together the peanut butter (make sure before measuring all the peanut butter, from the bottom of the jar, has been thoroughly mixed with the oil, so it is all uniform before measuring), the confectioner's sugar, and the crumbs (finely crushed) in with mixer if possible for through mixing, and then slowly add the butter until you reach a moist crumbly stage. You may not need all the butter if it is already very wet from a soft, natural peanut butter, so some may be left. Then, after patting into pan, chill in fridge for about 10 minutes or so prior to adding the chocolate top. You may need to keep the natural peanut butter edibles in the refrigerator and take out before serving.

    Butter only please, margarine adds more water. Won't work well in this recipe.
