Easy No-Bake Peanut Butter Squares

After a long day of work, where the weekend feels like it may never arrive, I crave a bite of decadent sweetness. However on days like that, I usually don't have the patience to actually bake or make anything. It's the middle of the week and I want the easiest dessert recipe I can possibly find. Sound impossible? Think again! I found an effortless, no bake, dessert bar that is full of creamy caramel colored peanut butter. Throw in a little melted chocolate and you're swiftly on your way to dulce heaven. For my piece of cake, no bake peanut butter square recipe,

you can melt the stuff in a bowl placed over some boiled water! (sort of like a double boil) it works just fine :D

Yum! I made these tonight - super fast to make and really good! I agree that the recipe should actually increase the amount of peanut butter, too, but it was still really good!

I made these last night and in my opinion the recipe called for too much graham cracker and not enough peanut butter. I would increase the peanut butter to 1 1/2 cups to make them perfect (and add a little more melted butter).

You know, when i was in 10th grade one of my mom's friends used to make these,and he would NOT give me the recipe. I hope these are it. I ahve tried a few since and they did not taste quite the same. I'm all in.

wow, this reminds me so much of the only good dessert they ever served at school lunch when I was in elementary school. I'm definitely going to have to make it.
