Here is the scenario:  It is late.  You are tired.  And your husband needs dessert.  A chocolate dessert.  What do you do?

Anyone been there? *Raises Hand*

I have been in this predicament too many times. And – some days it is me that just wants a gooey chocolate fix right now. Without driving through the donut drive-through. (Also been there.)

In times like these, you need the most wonderful dessert that involves no baking, no fancy ingredients – in only a few minutes. I usually always have these ingredients on hand, and can whip up this dessert in under 10 minutes.

Also – the peanut butter mixture tastes JUST like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. So – if you even just want a Reese’s fix – you know where to go. You might eat the whole bowl of the peanut butter mixture before you even spread it in the pan!

Excited? Here it is – the best dessert ever.  Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars.

Make sure you check who has tried these bars! There are several great reviews on Pinterest.

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Prep Time 10 mins


  • 7 Tbsp Butter
  • 3/4 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 1/2 cup Confectioners Sugar
  • 10 oz Chocolate Chips


  • Melt 6 tablespoons of the butter and the peanut butter in the microwave (about 1 minute) until smooth.  
  • Add confectioners sugar. 
  • Mix and spread in bottom of 9×9 pan.  
  • Melt remaining butter (1 Tablespoon) and chocolate chips on the stovetop until melted. (I used to do this step in the microwave, but it resulted in a lot of burned chocolate. And that tastes bad.)  
  • Mix and spread on top of peanut butter mixture.  
  • Cover and refrigerate until hard.  Cut or break into pieces and enjoy!
