No-Bake Buckeye Bars Recipe

 You may have noticed our love for all things chocolate and peanut butter by now.  Some of our favorites desserts are our Chubby Hubby Buckeye Truffles and our Peanut Butter Brownie Buckeye Cupcakes.  These yummy bars have the taste of our favorite buckeye treats but only take a few minutes to make!

No-Bake Buckeye Bars Recipe:


Nonstick cooking spray
2 cups creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
3 cups pretzel sticks, crushed

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Crushed pretzels

Line a 9×13 baking pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.  In a large mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, softened butter, powdered sugar and crushed pretzel sticks.  Press evenly into prepared pan.  In the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth. Spread over the peanut butter layer.  Sprinkle on crushed pretzels. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.

    Awesome post! This recipe is brilliant. I mean it. I’m busy “as all get out” this holiday season (although – in the world that I live in as an off-premise caterer/event planner, it’s not a big surprise and more like… What else is new?), I’m sure you guys are busy too, and I know most everyone else is too — so, this recipe… being “no bake” and all, is perfect!

    Merry Christmas, ladies! I’m wishing each one of you a safe and fun end of 2012 AND an exciting and prosperous 2013!

    Thank you!! Why didn’t I think of this?! Bars! I have so much baking to do this weekend and I really wanted to make Buckeyes but didn’t want to take the time to shape, freeze, melt chocolate, dip and freeze again. This version will save me so much time. You rock.
