Who loves chocolate and peanut butter?

I DO!

I’m guessing you do too, right? RIGHT?

Ok, now that that has been established, I can share these babies with you 🙂

aka "make at home Reeses"

Oh, and did I mention they taste just like a Reese’s peanut butter cup?

‘Cause they do. Seriously.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter (I used creamy Peter Pan)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup powdered sugar (start small then add more as you go, it really depends onhow sweet you like your desserts)
  • chocolate chips (eyeball it, maybe 3/4 a cup?)

In a food processor, combine the butter, graham crumbs, peanut butter and sugar.  Pulse it a few times to really combine the ingredients and break down the crumbs even more.  They provide texture, but shouldn’t be chunky. Spread the mixture into an 8×8 pan. It will be thin, these are bites after all!  Then, melt your chocolate chips on low in the microwave until it reaches a smooth and spreadable consistency.  Add a dollop of Crisco if it’s too thick.  Using an off-set spatula, spread the chocolatey goodness over the peanut butter mixture. Chill for 1 hour. Cut into bites, or heck, 4×4 squares if you want, and enjoy!
