Peanut Butter Squares Recipe

These rich bite-size squares taste creamier than store-bought peanut butter cups. Since they're made on the stove, there's no need to turn o the oven, notes Val Worthing of Clio, Michigan.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:72 servings


  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, divided
  • 1 package (16 ounces) confectioners' sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips


  • 1. In a saucepan over medium heat, cook and stir peanut butter and 3/4 cup butter and until smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla (mixture will be very thick). Pat into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. In a saucepan over low heat, combine chips and remaining butter; cook and stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in the remaining vanilla. Spread over peanut butter layer. Chill until firm. Yield: about 6 dozen.
