This recipe appears in: No Oven Required: My Peanut Butter Cup Runneth Over


  • 1 cup finely crumbled or processed graham crackers (The finer the better--you can also substitute other cracker or cereal 'crumbs' although the results will be slightly less 'Reese's' in style)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup loosely packed confectioner's sugar
  • 1 /2 (generous) cup of peanut butter (I used smooth Jif)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. 1

    Cream butter, sugar, and peanut butter together.

  2. 2

    Add butter, sugar, and peanut butter mixture to crumbs, stir vigorously until thoroughly blended.

  3. 3

    Press mixture in cupcake liners or a parchment-lined 8x8 inch pan.

  4. 4

    Melt chocolate in microwave or over bain maire. Pour or spoon chocolate over peanut butter mixture. Spread or distribute evenly

  5. 5

    Chill for 2-3 hours, or until firm enough to serve. If making bars, score pan after five minutes of chilling.
