This is my favorite time of year! I love to bake so I can’t wait to do my holiday baking! I have so many holiday recipes. We have fun putting bags of treats together to share with our friends.
I wanted to add a new recipe to our holiday baking list. I wanted something easy so that my 4 year old could help me. And I really wanted a no-bake recipe since I already had so many other things to bake. We all need easy baking ideas for the holidays!
We had just gone to Walmart and I had bought some Skippy Peanut Butter and Honey Maid Grams so we could make some Gingerbread Houses. So I thought we would see what we could create with the extra ingredients.
I am so happy about this recipe. It is amazing and so easy to make. My kids had a lot of fun helping me crush the graham crackers. No Bake Peanut Butter Bars will be a treat we make in our house year round. It is one of those recipes that you are going to want to make for pot lucks or dessert exchanges. They taste so good and they are so quick and easy to make!
No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
- 1 cup butter melted
- 2 cups Homey Maid graham cracker crumbs (about 12 crackers)
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup + 1/4 cup Skippy peanut butter (separated)
- 1 1/2 cups semi-chocolate chips
- In a large plastic bag add about 12 Homey Maid graham crackers. Pound them to crumbs with a rolling pin.
- Add the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, powdered sugar, and 1 cup of peanut butter in a bowl and mix well.
- Press this mixture in the bottom of a 9×13 pan and set aside.
- In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of Skippy Peanut Butter. Microwave for 30 seconds on 50% power. Remove and stir. Repeat for 15 seconds at 50% power until the mixture is smooth. Spread evenly over the graham cracker mixture. Cover and put in the refrigerator for at least an house to chill.
- Cut into 24 bars. Store in the refrigerator.
We also had a lot of fun using the peanut butter and graham crackers to make Gingerbread Houses. My daughter was very creative with her house and landscaping. My boys had fun too but they were more interested in eating the accessories for the Gingerbread houses. Peanut butter makes a great “glue” to hold the walls together.
We used a piece of wax paper under the Gingerbread houses. It worked best when you had 2 long walls and 2 short walls. Ben decided to just stack a bunch of graham crackers on top of each other inside the house for extra support. When you pick up Skippy peanut butter and Honey Maid graham crackers are Walmart, make sure you also pick up some candy to decorate your Gingerbread house. It’s also really delicious to eat peanut butter on graham crackers.
We had so much fun with very simple ingredients! This weekend have a Gingerbread house building party with your kids. You all will have so much fun! You can print a coupon to save $0.50 when you buy one (1) Honey Maid Grahams (12.2 oz. or larger)
