  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs

Chocolate Topping:

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped chocolate
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts chopped



  • Line an 8x8 or 9x9 dish with parchment paper so it has handles on the two of the sides that face each other, for easy removal of the bars.
  • Add melted butter and peanut butter to a large bowl and mix until smooth.
  • Beat in powdered sugar, and then the crumbs. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula.

Chocolate Topping:

  • Melt chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave, stir until smooth and combined, and pour the mixture over the peanut butter base. Smooth with a spatula and sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
  • Chill for at least 2 hours before cutting and serving.
