Tuesday Treats & Titles: No-Oven Peanut Butter Squares

I’m all about the no-bake, quick and easy yummy treats, especially when they resemble a favorite candy–Reeces Peanut Butter Cups. Only these are home-made. The hardest part of the whole recipe? Waiting the hour for them to chill so you can cut and eat! 😉

What You Need

1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 pkg. (4 oz. each) BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted
Reynolds® is a registered trademark of Reynolds Consumer Products LLC

Let’s Make It
1 – Line 13×9-inch pan with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil, with ends of foil extending over sides.
2 – Microwave butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 45 sec. or until melted. Add sugar, graham crumbs and peanut butter; mix well. Spread onto bottom of prepared pan; cover with chocolate.
3 – Make shallow cuts in top of dessert to mark 48 squares. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Use foil handles to remove dessert from pan; cut into squares following scored lines on dessert.

Kitchen Tips
Tip 1 – How to Make Thicker Servings: Prepare recipe as directed, using a 9-inch square pan and reducing the chocolate to 2 pkg. Cut into bars instead of squares.

Tip 2 – Easy Microwave Melting of BAKER’S Chocolate: Microwave BAKER’S Chocolate to be used in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 30 sec.; stir. Microwave 30 sec. more; stir. Continue heating and stirring in 10-sec. increments until chocolate is completely melted.

I have Lainey from NIGHT MOVES on my mind as I’m working on formatting my next book. She…popped a surprise in the upcoming release, NIGHT WISH. When I mentioned Tuesday Treats and Titles, she informed me that peanut butter and chocolate are really high on her list of cravings currently. I don’t have links for NIGHT WISH yet, but I do for Lainey and Hollywood’s story, NIGHT MOVES. You might want to reread it, if you’re a fan. If you’re new to the Nightrider world, start at the beginning, NIGHT SHIFT.  You know the drill. Click on the cover or the titles for the buy links. What about y’all? What’s your favorite flavor combination this time of year?

      Thought you might like the yummies. Crossing fingers I have at least the ‘Zon formatting done today so I can upload there. They’re usually pretty quick about going live fast. I need to get some markety-marketing stuffs set up too. Gah! It never ends. 🤦🏼‍♀️
