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!!

Peanut-Butter Sandwich Cookies

If one was having a party to watch the Oscars, or even if there wasn’t a party & you want a snack, what could be more appropriate than these cookies? The story, as I read it on epicurious.com, is that Nora Ephron (director & screenwriter) went to the Dahila Bakery in Seattle & bought some of these cookies. She emailed the owner saying that these were her all-time favourite and wanted the recipe. The bakery owner sent Nora Ephron the recipe with some cookies & asked if she could name the cookie after her in a cookbook. The answer was yes! I am going to a party to watch the Academy Awards Sunday night in Toronto so I baked these up & am taking them with me… hopefully they will not get broken in my suitcase! I have carefully packaged them up in tins. They are a bit time-consuming to make but very delicious.
