Cuisine American
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 12

Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust

  • 15 graham cracker squares or 7 graham cracker sheets
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter

Ganache

  • 3/4 heavy cream
  • 1 cup dark chocolate or semisweet if you prefer
  • 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter

Instructions

Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • For the crust, pulse graham crackers, then add the brown sugar, melted butter, and peanut butter and pulse again until it resembles wet sand. Drop a teaspoon in a silicone tray (ice cube trays are great!). Press firmly into the cavity and bake for only 5 mins.

Ganache

  • Heat cream in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for one minute at 30 second intervals. Alternatively, you can do this on the stovetop in a double boiler.
  • Add the chocolate chunks and let them sit in the cream for 30 seconds. Then, stir until smooth. If the chocolate is not fully melted, microwave at 15 second intervals.
  • Add the creamy peanut butter and stir gently into the ganache.
  • Pour on top of the cooled crust and top with sea salt.
  • Refrigerate the bars for an hour to set and serve.

Notes

  • If you live in a colder climate, the bars old nicely at room temperature. If you live in a tropical place, keep it refrigerated.
