Peanut Butter Ganache Layer Bar

 

Reese’s lovers: this is your moment. What makes Reese’s, heaven? Lightly coarse peanut butter, layered with the perfect ratio of silky chocolate. Make your own. YES, I said it. I have the recipe for you.

I can’t say this is a healthy recipe, unless you think “dark chocolate = antioxidants.” But with all healthy diets come a little indulgence. After all, it’s the weekend now!

I drool over these bars. Dream of them. Have eaten an entire plate of them by myself. These are cruel bars that won’t let you stop eating once you’ve started.

In a few simple steps, you will have created that peanut butter goodness you find in Reese’s with a slightly more sophisticated dark chocolate shell.

If I haven’t sold you yet, just try the recipe and you’ll be sold soon enough.

 

The Ingredients

1 cup and 2 heaping tablespoons smooth peanut butter (I like Teddy’s Smooth Peanut Butter!)

1 cup confectioner’s sugar

1 stick butter

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (unless you prefer sweeter chips!)

 

The Steps

In an 8×8 glass pan, line with two layers of aluminum foil so that the sides can be lifted out of the pan.

In a medium bowl, melt butter in microwave, about one minute. Add 1 cup peanut butter, confectioner’s sugar, and graham cracker crumbs. Stir to combine.

Pour mixture in lined glass pan. Set in refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Melt chocolate chips in microwaveable bowl for about 1 minute, until just melted. Add 2 heaping tablespoons of smooth peanut butter. Stir well. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Evenly spread chocolate mixture onto peanut butter mixture in glass pan.

Cool in refrigerator for 1 hour. Lift foil out of pan and peel back foil from bars.

Slice and take a bite of heaven.
