Velvet Lava promised that these would be irresistible, and she was right on point! These honestly taste very close to a Butterfinger candy bar. They’re amazing. I couldn’t believe how good they were! I made them for some friends and they all enjoyed them as well. I will be making these again and again because they’re so easy and you don’t even have to bake anything! You just mix it all together, layer it, and you’re done! If you’ve got 10 minutes, you’ve got enough time to make these. It’s definitely worth it. Recipe after the jump.
All you need! I used half crunchy and half smooth peanut butter. Next time I think I will definitely use all chunky peanut butter.
Grind up your graham cracker crumbs in your food processor or blender. I tried to grind them up with the peanut butter because I wasn’t thinking! It took forever and I ended up having to…
…beat in the butter and powdered sugar with my stand mixer. So grind up the graham crackers FIRST, don’t just dump everything in like I did, hahah.
So spread the peanut butter/graham cracker mixture into a greased and lined 9×13 pan.
Now melt your chocolate chips. You can do this in the microwave (carefully), in a small sauce pan (carefully), or over a double-boiler, which is the safest option (the other two ways can burn your chocolate very easily), but I was lazy and just melted it in a sauce pan.
And spread the melted chocolate evenly over the peanut butter mixture. Throw it in the fridge to firm up and you’re golden!
Lift the foil out of the pan, cut into squares, and enjoy with a cold glass of milk.
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1½ cups graham cracker crumbs (I used 18 whole graham crackers to make the crumbs)
- 1⅔ cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
- Line and grease a 9x13 inch pan with aluminum foil. In a food processor, grind up your graham crackers (unless you have store-bought crumbs).
- Add the butter, peanut butter, and sugar to your crumbs and process until a ball forms (you can also beat everything together in your mixer if your processor/blender/whatever can't do it).
- Press the mixture into the pan. I found that using my hands worked best.
- Over a double-boiler, or carefully in the microwave or in a small sauce pan over the stove, melt the chocolate chips, stirring often to prevent burning. Spread the melted chocolate over peanut butter mixture.
- Chill in refrigerator for about an hour. Allow to come to room temperature before cutting into squares. Store in the refrigerator, or better yet, the freezer!
