Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars

Time for another month of The Secret Recipe Club!

This month I was assigned to Kara's blog, Happy Go Lucky. So many yummy recipes to choose from, like her Pizza Casserole, Samoas Milkshakes, and Jalapeno Pimento Cheese Spread... can I have them all?!? At once? But man, I couldn't pass up a chance to make these.

These remind me of peanut butter crackers.... with chocolate. Mmmm. The chocolate and peanut butter really shown through, along with the crunch of the crackers. And the graham cracker concoction that goes in the middle?! I wish there was more! I think in the future I'm going to try it without the peanut butter, and maybe with some sea salt on top to give it that sweet and salty taste I always love. So many ways you could go with these! You could try with different kinds of crackers... maybe Townhouse (love!). Or use saltines and make something that kinda resembles these guys.

Basically, what I'm trying to say is, whether you're a peanut butter, chocolate, caramel, crunchy-crackery-graham crackery-lover, or all of the above, you'll enjoy these treats :)

Thanks for the great recipe, Kara! And I'll be back to make that casserole for sure.

*Note: we didn't use the whole box of Club crackers, but almost all of it.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars
from Happy Go Lucky
  • 1 box of Club crackers
  • 1 box of Honey Maid Graham Crackers
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
Line an ungreased 9 x 13 pan with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray to prevent bars from sticking. Line the bottom of the pan with Club crackers.

Crush graham crackers using a food processor.

In a large sauce pan, melt butter. Add crushed graham crackers, brown sugar, sugar, and milk. Bring to a boil; let boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Pour 1/2 of the mixture over the crackers. Place another layer of crackers and spread the remaining butter mixture over the crackers. Top with a third layer of crackers.

In a small sauce pan, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter over medium-low heat. Spread evenly over the crackers.

Cover and chill for at least one hour before cutting to allow to set.
