In Boissevain, Manitoba, Mina Dyck relies on her microwave to hurry along assembly of these yummy make-ahead bars. With their pleasant peanut butter and chocolate flavor, they're sure to disappear quickly.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:20 servings


  • 10 whole graham crackers, broken into quarters, divided
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 14 squares)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter


  • 1. Line the bottom of a greased 11x7-in. dish with half of the graham crackers; set aside. In a 2-qt. microwave-safe bowl, combine the crumbs, sugars, butter and milk. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 45 seconds; stir. Microwave on high 1-1/2 to 2 minutes longer. Immediately pour half over crackers in prepared pan. Top with the remaining graham crackers; spread with remaining sugar mixture.
  • 2. In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat chocolate chips and peanut butter, uncovered, on high for 30-45 seconds or until chips are melted. Stir until smooth and blended. Spread evenly over bars. Cover and refrigerate for 1-1/2 hours before cutting. Yield: 20 bars.

"I took these to a covered dish picnic and got asked for the recipe. I thought they were good, the consistency of the sugar mixture is a little strange at first. The bars cut very nicely and I was even able to cut each in half, to get 40."
