  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips optional
  • 1 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon Light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream


  • First, line a 8x8 or 9x9 pan with parchment paper so that it hangs over the edge for easy removal. Use an 8x8 pan to create thicker bars.
  • Next, add butter to a large, microwave safe bowl and melt.
  • Stir in graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and peanut butter, stir until fully combined. Lastly, stir in peanut butter chips if using. Press mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Add chocolate chips to a medium, microwave safe bowl and heat for 45 seconds. Stir well, then heat for another 30 seconds. Once melted, add in the corn syrup and heavy cream, stir until smooth and shiny.
  • Pour chocolate ganache over peanut butter layer and spread with a spatula until smooth. If desires, top with chopped peanuts.
  • Refrigerate the bars for 1-2 hours before cutting and serving. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
