My Daughter and I- Peanut Butter and Chocolate Buckeye Bars

We’ve posted this recipe before – but it’s worth reposting! This is by far one of the easiest recipes ever. It includes just a few ingredients that you probably have right now! They’reย perfect if you need a quick dessert to take to a potluck, or boxed up for an adorable teacher’s gift. Whatever the event – this recipe is a keeper.

My Daughter and I- Peanut Butter and Chocolate Buckeye Bars 1

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Buckeye Bars
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

I did mine in the food processor while the butter was melting, you want small crumbs.

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, or milk chocolate if that’s your preference. I used Trader Joe’s dark chocolate chips this time and the flavor for rich and not very sweet.

Melt butter in saucepan over low heat, add in the peanut butter and stir until melted. Add in the powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs and mix well.

Pour into an 8×8″ pan that is lined with aluminum foil and greased. Spread evenly.

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time until completely melted. You don’t want to overcook it, just melt it. Pour over the peanut butter mixture and spread evenly.

Refrigerate to set. When you’re ready to cut into bars, it works a bit better to bring the bars to room temperature. If you don’t, the chocolate tends to crack a bit. Using the aluminum foil, you can remove the whole batch from the pan and cut evenly. They are rich, so cut into small squares.
