No-Bake Peanut Butter Squares

This No-Bake Peanut Butter Square recipe is from Kraft Canada. I had everything I needed in my pantry so that made this very  easy. It  only took a few minutes to put together. The chilling time was the longest part of this recipe.

I printed out this recipe in 2008 & on the paper I have written in a bright colours sharpie {this is the peanut butter squares everyone likes!) I like to make it for company on any dessert platter & also just to have for a snack! 

The ingredients are easy…nothing special, but when combines!! They are delish! Butter, graham wafer crumbs, icing sugar & peanut butter…then chocolate chips! So good 

This No-Bake Peanut Butter Square takes minutes to make & has to chill a bit to firm up 

Here is the recipe  from Kraft Canada. note: I used chocolate chips instead of baking chocolate that was in the original recipe 

Ingredients 

1/2 cup butter

2 cups icing sugar 

1 1/2 cups graham wafer squares

1 cup peanut butter 

12 oz chocolate chips 

Method

Line a 13 x 9 baking dish with parchment paper with some overhang so you can pull the squares up out of the dish to cut

  1. Melt the butter, then add the icing sugar..sift it into the bowl to get rid of any lumps
  2. Add the graham wafer squares & peanut butter. Mix well until completely combined 
  3. Pat this evenly into the prepared 9 x 13 dish
  4. Melt the chocolate & let it cool briefly then spread it over the base
  5. Let this cool & then cut partially into squares.. the recipe recommends cutting this into 40 squares but of course you can cut the squares any size you want
  6. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour
  7. Lift the squares out of the pan & cut all the way through

Enjoy!!

Chocolate Bar Pie

This recipe is from my sister Edith & she gave it to me probably 25 years ago. I have looked for the original recipe, Hershey Bar Pie, but can not find it anywhere that is exactly the same as this one. The recipes I have seen on the internet call for Cool Whip & a pre-made graham crust. Certainly using a pre-made graham crust & Cool Whip makes this very easy & quick. I have made this as the recipe I have, with a quick home made no-bake graham pie crust…chilling it in the freezer while getting the filling ready.*** be careful not to leave it in the freezer too long & real whipped cream, unsweetened since the other ingredients are sweet. I like that this recipe is using real whipped cream..my personal preference rather then using Cool Whip. The filling is sweet, creamy & smooth. I grated some semi-sweet chocolate on top of the pie to finish it.

Here is the link to the recipe on the Hershey website.

This is the recipe I have from my sister

Chocolate Bar Pie

Ingredients

1  prepared 9″ graham cracker crust *** home made or bought is fine

1  8 oz milk chocolate bar, broken in pieces *** I used a Neilson Jersey Milk Bar

1/3 cup milk

1 1/3 cup mini marshmallows

1 cup whipping cream

Method

1. Make a graham wafer crust… I just used the recipe on the box of graham wafer crumbs &       chilled the crust in the freezer while I was getting everything else ready

2. Combine the chocolate bar, milk & marshmallows in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 1/2 to 2/ 1/2 minutes. Stir after 1 1/2 minutes. continue in the microwave until mixture is melted & smooth, stirring every 30 seconds

3. Cool chocolate mixture completely *** I put it in the freezer to cool

4. Whip the cream until stiff.

5. Fold the whipped cream into the cooled chocolate mixture.*** Add a bit of whipped cream to start & mix well, then fold the rest in.

6. Spoon into the crust

7. Chill for several hours until firm

*** I think this is meant for a bought graham crust shell…it didn’t fill up my pie pan enough so I will top it will a layer of whip cream I guess since the shell is not completely full !!!

No Bake Chocolate Corn Flake Cookies

Could there be a simpler cookie? Maybe, but this recipe is one of them! I love them!

I wanted  something chocolate that was non-dairy for dessert to go along side the coffee cake I was serving & didn’t really have time to bake, so remembered this recipe & it was perfect! Also, it is difficult to find non-dairy chocolates where I live so had to make some!
