Chocolate Peanut Butter Grahams

Because so many people seem to love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, I came up with this no-bake cookie recipe.—Geraldine Sliwa, Elgin, Illinois

    I make something very similar but use a brown sugar shortbread cookie recipe. I cut the dough in rectangles about the size of one quarter of a graham cracker. Once baked, I spread peanut butter between two cookies and freeze them. Once frozen, I melt real chocolate chips with a bit of butter or oil and dip the sandwich cookies into the melted chocolate chips. I normally decorate the tops with Christmas sprinkles, etc. Let them set. They freeze very well. Such a delicious combination. My family loves them!

    I have made these a few times. I even made these with chocolate graham crackers,so they are good either way. I also add some cookie sprinkles on top before the chocolate sets when I made these for christmas. I will keep making. cupcake

    We made these and also the kind with Ritz crackers which I thought tasted very different PLUS everyone loved these the best! To me they taste like the Little Debbie Nutty Bars. They were a HIT!

    these are really good but if you don't have graham crackers use ritz crackers they work the same and taste just as good bevie5

    This is an outstanding recipe! Easy and delicious. I wonder what it would taste using Nutella in place of peanut butter? I may give that a try. They look gorgeous especially when I added "tree" candies as suggested by FranPolito. Thanks so much for sharing.

    I absolutely love this easy recipe. I had to make 11 dozen cookies for an exchange party and this was the easiest, tastiest recipe I found. I have a mini crockpot. I put it on low and added the chocolate coating. It melts to the perfect temperature and makes dipping a lot easier. When a sheet of cookies is done, I put it in the back of the SUV to cool. It's winter in NY so it cools really fast. After dipping and before cooling I decorated the cookies with red and green "tree" cndies.

    Re: I found your comment " You didn't come up with the recipe to be a tad rude. She never said she orginated the recipe. I have been eating graham crackers and peanut butter for years and never thought of covering them in chocolate, perhaps one day she got the idea to do just that. Kudos to the two of you who have been enjoying these for the last 40 years, but thanks to her posting a lot more people will get to enjoy them.

    I'm sure you probably could freeze them.  My grandma always use to add parafin to her chocolate coating to make it not melt as easily and it puts a pretty gleam on the chocolate.  It would also probably help it to stay frozen a little longer before melting. Hope this helps
