Peanut Butter Bars

This is a quick and easy dessert recipe I got from my mother-in-law.  I think it’s my family’s favorite dessert recipe ever.  These never last long at my house and probably won’t at yours either.

Melt two sticks margarine.  Remove from heat and add:

  • 1-3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2-1/2 to 3 cups powdered sugar

Mix together and press into greased 9×13 pan.

Melt 2 cups milk chocolate and spread over crust. Let chocolate harden slightly and then cut into squares. If you wait until chocolate has hardened to cut the squares, the chocolate sometimes breaks into smaller pieces.

  1. I made these and took them to our church’s potluck today and they were gone in a flash. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. I made these lessening the amount of sugar used somewhat and we loved them. So did the neighbors who were tasters. It is a recipe we will enjoy again. Thanks so much for sharing!
