Recipe of the Week: Chad’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

The following recipe is from reader Chad in Wisconsin. He modified a commercial recipe that he found online, to allow him to make his equivalent of Resse’s Peanut Butter Cups, from his storage foods cache.  Chad says: “This is the ultimate ‘comfort food’ for The Dark Days.” He also notes: “This recipe can be doubled, for double your yum!”


Base Layer:



To Make The Base Layer:

  1. Melt 1 cup butter, margarine, or ghee over low heat.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in powdered sugar, peanut butter, and the graham cracker crumbs.
  3. Spread mixture in a jelly roll pan. Pat it down evenly.

To Make The Topping:

  1. Melt together 1/2 cup butter, margarine, or ghee with 1 cup chocolate chips.
  2. Spread this topping mixture over the peanut butter mixture.

To Prep for Serving or Storage:

  1. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Cut into bars of the desired size.

Chad noted that these bars can be frozen for storage for a week or more, if the bars are kept individually wrapped in saran-type wrap.
