Peanut Butter Cup Bars – Make your own, favorite Peanut Butter Cups at home, fresher, cheaper AND in a bigger bar size perfect for a family treat !
The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are now available in our stores, but they are ridiculously expensive. To make small individual cups takes a bit of time, which I do not like … and in comes the Peanut Butter Cup Bars !
Until about 2 years ago, I have never had a Peanut Butter Cup … really !
The Reese’s brand was not available in our general supermarket stores and one could only get them from a speciality store, which we did not have one close enough.
I remember the first batch of PB Cups I made at home – instant addiction.
Same delicious taste, less work and 25 – 30 bars are ready in less than 25 minutes. Now that is something I can live with.
My son still refuses to eat Peanut Butter anything, except when it is spread on bread. He might have been changed with another baby in hospital – only explanation I can think of !
Well, I say, more for myself .. oh, and the rest of the family of course.

- 4 cups Icing Sugar
- 1 cup Dry Bread Crumbs – the very fine type (or Graham crumbs)
- 1 1/2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1.) Combine the Butter, Peanut Butter, Icing Sugar and Crumbs – food processor works perfectly
2.) Line a baking sheet with baking paper – let the paper hang over the edges for easy removal – press the Peanut Butter mixture firmly into the baking sheet
3.) Melt the Chocolate Chips – spread over the filling – chill 15 minutes
