Simple to make and taste just like the real thing. You can make these delicious peanut butter bars recipe with just 5 ingredients in under 20 minutes.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 6 mins
Total: 16 mins


  • 1 cup margarine, melted
  • 2 ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter, chunky
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 12 oz milk chocolate, chocolate chips or bar


  1. Line a 9x13" pan with parchment or wax paper. Mix 2 sticks of butter, powdered sugar, peanut butter, and graham cracker crumbs. Spread mixture on the bottom of the pan.

  2. Melt chocolate (see note) and spread over mixture in pan. Let set in a cool place. Remove from pan and cut into desired shapes.

  3. Note: You can melt the chocolate either in the microwave or in a double boiler:

  4. In a Microwave Oven: Place coarsely chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe container and microwave at medium (50 percent power) for 1 ½-4 minutes, until the chocolate turns shiny. Remove the container from the microwave and stir the chocolate until completely melted.

  5. Stir milk and white chocolates after about 1 ½ minutes. Because of their milk proteins, they need to be stirred sooner than dark chocolate. (If overheated, these chocolates may become grainy.)

  6. In a Double Boiler: Place coarsely chopped chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, not simmering, water. Melt the chocolate, stirring until smooth. Remove the top part of the double boiler from the bottom
