These Reese’s peanut butter bars taste just like the Reese’s Eggs, only bigger and better! Your whole family will love this easy no bake treat!
A sweet neighbor of mine shared these Reese’s Peanut Butter bars with us years ago and they were an immediate favorite! I asked for the recipe right away and we could hardly hold back from making them the very next day again. Well, since today is national peanut butter lovers day I figured it was only fitting that I share my very favorite peanut butter centered recipe with you today!
I was honestly shocked when I first I made these Reese’s peanut butter bars for the first time and realized how dang easy they were to make! These babies have everything you love about a Reese’s cup, with minimal effort, and the ability to feed a crowd! I mean, it just doesn’t get better than this!
For the photos I cut them into large, brownie size squares, but they are honestly so rich you can cut them much smaller than that and still have a yummy treat! So, they are perfect to share with friends and neighbors, or to bring to family parties and gatherings come holiday time! Are you ready for the recipe?!

I’m a huge Reese’s fan and these things were nothing like Reese’s at all. Im really disappointed I believed you.
Hi! Just a quick question for you. In the ingredients you list 3 tablespoons of PB, in the direction it says 1 cup. Is it a typo?
Hey Cynthia, sorry for the confusion! So listed in the ingredients is acutually 1 cup of peanut butter, as well as 3 Tablespoons listed separately. The one cup goes into the peanut butter part of the bars, and the 3 Tablespoons mixes in with the chocolate part, does that make sense?
CAN’T WAIT TO TRY THESE! YUM!
I hope you love them as much as we do!
My husband is a huge Reese’s Fan, he thanks you for this recipe! ;)
He is very welcome!

I agree, they are perfect!
Mmm peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven!
Seriously, though! It’s the best combo!
I think its fate I had everything to make these…. as I sit here now trying to save some for my nieces who are coming over! They were so easy and needless to say I LOVE them!
YAY – it was meant to be!
