No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars


SERVES 12-24  |  ACTIVE TIME 15 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 1 Hour 15 Min
 
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 cups honey roasted crunchy peanut butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup International Delight French Vanilla (liquid) Creamer

Add butter to a large microwave safe mixing bowl. Heat in the microwave until the butter is completely melted. Stir in the peanut butter. Once combined add the graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar. Stir until everything is completely incorporated.

Pour mixture into a 9x13 baking pan and spread evenly. Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the ganache topping.

Heat creamer in the microwave until hot and steamy, about 1-2 minutes. Watch it carefully so it does not boil over. I use my 1 cup glass measuring cup.

Meawhile add the chocolate chips to a medium bowl. Pour the hot creamer over the chips and cover the bowl. Allow to sit for 5 minutes. Stir until smooth. You may have to heat the mixture in the microwave again if the cream was not hot enough. I do 30 seconds at a time and stir between intervals.

Pour the ganache over the peanut butter layer. Smooth into an even layer. 

Refrigerate 1-2 hours. Cut and serve. Store bars in the refrigerator.

DONNA'S NOTES: These bars freeze great!
