“I shouldn't have discovered this recipe because I love peanut butter. This is heavenly, and it was nice in the summer because it's a no-bake recipe. Recipe courtesy of Taste of Home Contest Winning Annual Recipes 2010. Serving size is estimated.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line a 9 inch square pan with foil and butter the foil. (I skipped the foil step and found as long as my pan was greased I didn't need to line it with foil. I get nervous I will end up with foil stuck in the dessert.).
  2. In a large bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and butter. Spread into prepared pan.
  3. Combine topping ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and heat until melted.
  4. Spread over peanut butter layer.
  5. Refrigerate until cool.
  6. Using foil, lift out of pan. Cut into 1 inch squares and store in an airtight container. (I simply cut mine into squares right in the pan and put them on a serving dish. I could have also left them in the pan.
