How to Make No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars

  1. Line an 8×8 square dish with foil, spray lightly with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. For the crust, place all Oreos into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until crumbs have formed. Melt butter in the microwave and stir into the oreo crumbs. Press well into the bottom of the prepared dish. Refrigerate.
  3. For the filling, place white chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter into a heatproof bowl. Microwave using 30-second intervals, stirring in between until chocolate chips and butter have melted into the peanut butter creating a smooth consistency. Stir in vanilla and powdered sugar.
  4. Spread over chilled crust, smooth the top and refrigerate until solid, at least 2 hours. {You could place in the freezer to speed things up.} Remove the entire pan of bars by peeling foil away from the dish and lifting up. Cut into 24 squares and sprinkle with fun toppings. Refrigerate No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars until ready to serve.

    Oh my, these look amazing!! My husband claims not to like peanut butter in baked goods/desserts, but I think I’m going to have to ignore him for this recipe and I’ll either convert him or they’ll be more for me & our daughter…win win!! πŸ˜€ Thanks for the great recipe!

      I think if you’re going to convert him to being a peanut butter lover, these would be the treats to do it with! My husband is a peanut butter freak.

    Oh my! I just saw these on TK web-site and had to come look at the full blog entry. I don’t like regular oreos but I LOVE golden oreos and I don’t like chocolate chips but I LOVE white chocolate and who doesn’t LOVE peanut butter. I’m going to be making these real soon!!:)

    Those look incredible! I have a huge vat of peanut butter sitting around so maybe I know what I’ll do with some of it πŸ™‚

    I’m envious of your cold weekend – Mother Nature has decided that Tennessee is really supposed to be at the equator or something… it’s been HOT here!
