Chocolate, graham crackers, and peanut butter. Does it get much better than that? Who knew you could have such a tasty dessert ready in under 10 minutes?

What You'll Need:
  • 18 chocolate graham crackers (2 sleeves from a 14.4-ounce package)
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3 cups assorted fun-size candy bar halves
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
What To Do:
  1. Line a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with waxed paper extended on all sides.
  2. In a food processor, pulse graham crackers until finely ground. Place in a large bowl and add confectioners' sugar.
  3. In a medium microwaveable bowl, combine butter and peanut butter and microwave 1 minute, or until melted, stirring until smooth. Stir into crumb mixture; let cool 5 minutes. Fold in candy bar pieces. Press mixture into prepared baking dish.
  4. In a medium microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate chips about 1 minute, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth. Spread over candy mixture and refrigerate until set.
  5. Remove from pan to a cutting board, remove waxed paper, and cut into bars.

We like to use Snickers, Kit Kats, and Nestle's Crunch, but go ahead and use your own favorites!

This recipe is a total waste of time and ingredients. I made it today to take to my gym and it was a complete failure. The graham cracker crust completely fell apart. There were only a couple of places in the entire pan that actually looked like a bar when cut that did not crumble. This is more suited to sprinkling over ice cream or topping a pudding dessert with than calling them bars. I won't make them again. Very disappointing. I have been disappointed with quite a few recipes on this site lately, and I usually don't have any trouble with these recipes. I would rate this recipe a minus 4 if I could. Don't waste your time.

You say the crust completely fell apart? What crust? Everything gets folded together. Don't know how you ended up with a crust

If you look at the picture, you will see the chocolate layer is crust like. and that completely crumbled and all that was left was the candy topping. They did not stay together at all.

Why did you give it 5 stars if you hated it so much? Did you even try it?

That was obviously a mistake, and it's been 2 1/2 years since I wrote this.. Yes I did try it and while it wasn't bad tasting, actually anything chocolate can't be bad, it was a disappointment in the presentation, not taste. Too many crumbles and nothing substantial to put on a plate.

OMG - These are soooo good!!! I used regular graham crackers instead of chocolate. I have made these at least 4 times in 2 weeks, goes really fast between family at home and coworkers! Keep these easy recipes coming!!!

I'd like to see these recipes without using the microwave. Don't own one and never will.

You can heat these on the stove top. I would use a double boiler, to not burn chocolate or peanut butter mixture. These recipes have been adapted to use a microwave....years ago the double boiler was the going way to melt and not burn ingredients!!!
