Delicious homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the form of a bar!


Reese's No Bake Peanut Butter Bars stacked on top of one another on a wooden plate. My oven just stopped working. It is always a sad day for someone that uses it quite frequently and loves to bake. Hopefully it will be replaced real soon because I am totally wanting to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies. This is the inner fat pregnant girl talking right now. 🙂 Luckily these delicious squares were easy and also no bake. I had them ready in no time and they sure did satisfy my sweet tooth!

Ummmm…. where have these been all my life? I mean. I totally ate all of the Reese’s peanut butter cups out of the stockings but now I can have a homemade pan of them? I think I am in heaven. These turned out perfect. And they were so easy to make! I love being able to make my favorite homemade treats at home. And I know that you will love them just like me!

  1. Thank you for that Mary, I never thought about doing that! I haven’t made these yet, but I do make a peanut butter candy cake that is just like the Tastykake ones, if you are familiar with them. I always have trouble with the chocolate cracking on top.

  2. 5 stars

    The Reese’s no bake peanut butter bars look so good can’t wait to try them. Can the recipe be doubled?

    1. I am in the process of updating all my recipes with nutritional information. In the meantime you are welcome to use to find the nutritional values you are looking for.

  4. I have a question about the no bake peanut butter bars. It calls for 2 cups of confectioner’s sugar. I was wondering have you ever worked with stevia as a replacement for sugar in anything like these bars? I’m diabetic and would like to reduce the carbohydrates. And if you have used Stevia before can you tell me how much I should use to replace this sugar?

    1. I have heard that stevia is a great substitution and works great in most of my recipes. Let me know what you think! XOXO

    1. I use crushed Ritz crackers (roughly 2 sleeves) in mine. They are awesome! I’ve never used graham crackers. Gotta try that soon.
