5 Ingredient Reese's Bars

    Everyone likes Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, right? Well what if you could make your own...and they'd still taste the same, maybe even better? There are LOTS of Reese's bar recipes and I was very determined to make the best and easiest one. I was searching frantically over the Internet for the perfect Reese's bars. After looking at many recipes, this one is definitely my favorite.

The Ingredients

I made my bars crunchy and didn't smash the graham crackers all the way.
It's time to melt some chocolate!
My first successful attempt at melting chocolate.  The secret?
Melt it in the microwave and don't worry about the double broiler!
All things are possible with God...including not stuffing yourself with these bars.

If only I had white chocolate in the house, then they could be white chocolate Reese's bars. =0

2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (or white chocolate)
2 3/4 cups confectioner's sugar

1. In a medium bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, and butter. Press firmly into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan.
2. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring occasionally. Spread melted chocolate over the crumb crust.
3. Chill for about 5 minutes, then cut into bars before the chocolate is completely set, then chill until ready to serve.

My friend trying them for the very first time!
I think she liked them. =)
This recipe is so convenient you can make it almost anywhere, even in a dorm room or a hotel. All you have to do is buy the ingredients, chill it, and eat it. And remember, it ONLY takes 5 ingredients!!! Wow.

  1. Oh no, this is seriously a dangerous recipe for me! And I always melt my chocolate in the microwave too--waaaaaay easier (especially with finicky white chocolate)!!!
