I am so excited to share this recipe for reeses peanut butter no-bake bars with you. I can’t beleive I haven’t posted these already. They are a family favorite. I found this recipe in my grandma’s recipe box a couple years ago and have been making them ever since. I’m telling you… they taste pretty dang close to a reeses bar… but in my opinion BETTER! The best part? They take about five minutes to make and require absolutely no baking. YEA! Not to mention the chocolate peanut butter combo is amazing. My kind of recipe.

    I have Celiac, so graham cracker crumbs are not an option. Do you think it would hold together enough without the crumbs? It looks SO yummy!

      I think it would be too runny without the crumbs. Maybe you could try a gluten free cookie or cracker? Would love to hear how it goes.

        you can get gluten free graham crackers and gluten free graham cracker crumbs from Trader Joes or Whole foods- Ive used both for Smores and Cheesecakes. They are really good

      I am Gluten free also and really wanted to try this recipe. So I made it tonight and used cornflakes. Oh my goodness they were delicious. My Bro who is not Gluten Free loved them!

      If you can eat panko crumbs they should give you the same consistency as the graham cracker, You can even toast them in a pan over very low heat and a lil bit of butter to brown them just don’t walk away from the they brown quick.

      I combine peanut butter, margarine, and powdered sugar only. Chill and roll in balls and dip in melted chocolate and chill again. Really yummy with No crumbs.

      I too am celiac. You can buy gluten free graham type crackers made by Kinikinnic(sp). I used them to make smores and they weren’t too bad. Would probably be better in this since there is more flavor.

    I just made these tonight and they are awesome! They’re the first peanut butter chocolate thing I’ve ever made that really resembles PB cups… but, like you said, much better! Thanks for the recipe!

    THANK YOU FOR THIS RECIPE. I JUST MADE IT AN HOUR AGO AND I CAN SAY THIS IS BY FAR THE EASIEST NO BAKE BAR TO MAKE. I WILL BE WATCHING MY GRANDCHILDREN OVER THE WEEKEND AND MY GRANDSON WHO IS 1 1/2 YEARS OLD AND A VERY PICKY EATER AND STILL ONLY WEIGHS 20 LBS I’M HOPING HE WILL LIKE THIS ONE JUST TO GET THE PEANUT BUTTER IN HIM AND GRAHAM CRACKERS. IF HE LIKES IT, I’LL MAKE IT EVERY WEEK FOR HIM. JUST TO MAKE HIM EAT! MY GRANDAUGHTER LOVES EVERYTHING SO NO WORRIES THERE. PERSONALLY I’M NOT A BIG FAN OF PEANUTBUTTER, SO I WON’T BE A GOOD JUDGE OF THIS ONE.

    i made these yesterday and they’re AMAAAZING and super easy. I topped the chocolate with a small amount of fleur de sel before the chocolate set and it really kicked them over the top!

    I made these this week, and they are soooo good! I ran out of graham crackers, so the other cup was of bread crumbs I had in the pantry! They still turned out amazing. They were for my friends birthday and it was a hit. Thanks!

    Love these! Only I make them with carob chips, as my husband is allergic to chocolate. And as much as I love chocolate, I prefer these with carob.

    These are great but when I make them the chocolate is separating from the graham cracker base when I cut them. Do you know why this would be happening?

    This looks so yummy! Can’t wait to try it myself and blog about it. My niece has peanut allergies though. I was wondering if that part can be omitted or is there an alternative you can suggest?
