Quick question: Are the photos above of the original recipe or are the photos of bars that have more graham cracker crumbs added to the bottom layer to make it thicker? Also, does adding more graham cracker crumbs require more butter and peanut butter?
Thank you for posting a great looking recipe. My family will love these bars.
The pictures match the recipe. If you add more graham cracker, I would also add pb & butter! I hope you enjoy!
I have printed out the recipe for No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars.
My question is the frosting. I have found lately when I have melted chocolate chips and butter the choc chip do not melt like they used to. I have tried Nestlé’s and Hershey’s and both end up the same. I never used to have this problem what else can I use as I am afraid to try them again. The frosting is thick and hard to even spread.
Thanks for your help. Eunice
The recipe says the bottom layer takes one cup of butter. That’s 2 sticks! Is that right?
Yes, 1/2 cup or 1 stick. thanks for catching!
I make these all the time! The finer the graham crumbs are, the better. I put the grahams in a big ziploc bag and use my rolling pin to make them like powder. I mix the ingredients in my stand mixer with the dough hook. To make the recipe even easier, I use Nutella for the topping. A 9×13 pan lasts about a day here!
So how much is a sleeve of graham crackers. Someone else had this question and I did not see an answer. You know all graham crackers are not created equal! They have new ones that have only about 6 crackers per pack. No matter what recipe you use you need to be specific as nothing stays the same. I have a recipe that calls for a 10 cent size 7up. I bet there are not many people that have a clue what that is.
Thanks for letting me know how I could more clarify the recipe! I just changed it to include you need about 2 cups of crushed graham crackers. I hope you enjoy!
Quick question – in this comment, you state “about 2 cups of crushed graham crackers” are needed, yet above, in the ingredient list, it states 1 cup.
Could you please clarify which one is correct?
Thanks so much — Toni
It was a typo! Thanks so much for letting me know…it used to say one sleeve but that was confusing I think, so I must have mistyped the other day when I went back to edit. I fixed it now :o)
Wish there was a printable recipie
I just added one!
Is one sleeve of crackers equal to one cup?
