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. We used this to avoid the omg I need chocolate why don’t we have chocolate situation during a wedding weekend n omg are they amazing love it

  2. Maybe a very silly question. But in step you say : melt 4 tablespoons peanut butter and chocolate chips until smooth. Does this mean, combine the 2?? And then spread it on the pb layer?? Anyways thanks for the recipe, I am in LOVE with Reese’s cups but can’t buy them where I live. NOW I can make them thanks!!!!

  3. You say store leftovers….what leftovers? In my house they were gone in three hours! YUMMY! (there are three of us).

  4. These look so good and I can make them with Gluten Free graham crackers so will still be able to enjoy them .and not just make for the family 🙂

  5. These are wonderful. Unfortunately, I’m having trouble cutting them up so they look nice to serve at a party or something. Any suggestions on getting a nice clean cut?

  6. Made a batch of these the other night. I make them in two 8×8 pans and freeze one! I do that with alot of recipes

  7. I made these tonight (just a half recipe because I’m low on butter) and half the pan is gone already. They may not last until morning. Thanks (I think)!

  8. Yikes, sorry to hear about your oven – hope you get it fixed soon. Love these bars though! They look amazing and even better that they are no bake too 🙂
