Ingredients

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs very fine crumbs work best
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil optional, may help melting chocolate be creamier

Instructions

  • Mix graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, powdered sugar and peanut butter together. 
  • Spread peanut butter mixture in a lightly greased 9 x 13-inch pan.
  • Melt white chocolate chips, add vegetable oil to help make chocolate more creamy if necessary. 
  • Pour melted chocolate over peanut butter bars.
  • Allow the chocolate to set up and enjoy!

Notes

  • Creamy peanut butter can easily be substituted for creamy if desired
  • I prefer to purchase graham cracker crumbs for this recipe as opposed to making crumbs from graham crackers as the fine crumbs blend best with the other flavors
  • Use your favorite method to melt chocolate, I like to melt chocolate in the microwave and stir every :15 to :30 seconds
  • Stir chocolate often during the melting process and avoid over cooking
  • Use 1 tablespoon of oil per cup of chocolate chips
  • Let chocolate set up for at least a couple hours of the bars will be really gooey.  They still taste great when really gooey, but are fairly messy to eat.
  • Be careful if covering with plastic wrap while chocolate is still soft because the plastic may settle on and stick to the sticky chocolate
  • Once the chocolate is set it may crack easily when cutting
  • Holding a serrated knife perpendicular to the chocolate as I cut works better than holding the knife horizontal to the chocolate.
  • Candy can easily be cut in various sized pieces from bite size to a bit larger squares
  • Store in an airtight container on the counter and enjoy for 3 - 5 days
