No bake chocolate peanut butter bars -The Hungry Mum

If you are trying to watch your waistline or worried about the soaring costs of dental care avert your eyes. For this treat be both fat-and-sugar laden *but* it is super delicious and a cinch to make.

And anyway [not trying to sound defensive or anything] but if you are going to have a gloriously unhealthy morsel you are WAY better off having something you have created in your own kitchen, rather than some demented factory-produced piece of crud that is full of fake flavours.

Off my high horse now… I discovered this delish recipe on the lovely To Serve, With Love blog. Here is the original:

As this is a no cook slice it is perfect for those days when it is just too hot to turn the oven on. And she had the brill idea of making it in a Tupperware container – use this to transport the slice & you less washing up!

Cut into very small pieces to serve.



200 grams finely crushed plain biscuits  {Marie are ideal}

100 grams melted butter


50 grams brown sugar

200 grams icing sugar

50 grams unsalted butter, softened

200 grams peanut butter {original called for smooth, I only had crunchy}


200 grams milk chocolate

100 grams dark chocolate

2 tablespoons butter

The Hungry Mum - No bake chocolate peanut butter bars -


Line a shallow Tupperware container around 30cm x 20cm with greaseproof paper, ensuring it hangs over the sides.

In a food processor combine melted butter and biscuits then press over base of container. Place in fridge to firm up for half an hour or so.

In bowl of electric beater mix the filling ingredients until combined then carefully spoon over the base.

Back into fridge.

Melt together topping ingredients in a bowl over simmering water on stove. When smooth pour over slice.

Set in fridge overnight.

Try not to eat it all at once.

    This is delicious! Don’t think I can risk making it though as I will eat the whole thing……

      Thanks! I’m fairly immune to sweet treats but this one kept getting nibbled at…

    sounds delicious!!! Might be a good Christmas slice! Have you tried Tiger Butter? So naughty but sooo nice! tastes like Reeces Peanut Butter Cups from the US!

      These would be good at Chrissy, when it is just toooooo hot to turn on the oven. Haven’t heard of Tiger Butter but sounds right up my alley. I’ll keep an eye out 🙂

    Mmm. There really isn’t anything better than a no-bake chocolate & peanut butter dessert. Yum!

      I know – easy & oh so delish!

    Peanut butter! Would be even nicer than caramel slices 🙂

    • thehungrymum October 13, 2012 at 4:54 am #

      It is nicer coz it has the crunchy/salty mix. You should try it 🙂

    I really like no bake slices! They’re faster for starters and can usually stand a bit of lunchbox beating too! 😀

      Couldn’t agree more! Quick = good 🙂

      Do what I do – make it, then give it away [after nibbling a little piece first!]

  7. Lilly Sue October 14, 2012 at 12:53 am #

    I love peanut butter 😀

    • thehungrymum October 14, 2012 at 3:42 am #

      You & me both! And adding chocolate to the mix is even better 🙂

  8. Christine @ Cooking Crusade October 14, 2012 at 1:23 am #

    PB and choc is a sainted winner and a huge fave in my books. Love that you made it into a slice… Deeliiicious!

    • thehungrymum October 14, 2012 at 3:40 am #

      Those flavours meld sooo well together! And who doesn’t love slice 🙂

  9. nancyc October 19, 2012 at 5:14 pm #

    Yum, this sounds great! I love both chocolate and peanut butter! 🙂

    • thehungrymum October 20, 2012 at 11:34 pm #

      It is a winning combo! THis is very rich so a small bit goes a long way 🙂

    I am anticipating that we will need this recipe come summer time! 😀

    • thehungrymum August 23, 2015 at 8:41 am #

      oooh, I know – I hate summer and one of the many reasons why is because it is too hot to bake!

  13. Marie @ Not Enough August 23, 2015 at 11:05 am #

    mmm peanut butter… You’re speaking to my heart haha. I love the idea of making this directly in the tupperware, brilliant!

    • thehungrymum August 23, 2015 at 11:19 pm #

      How good is it, making it in the Tupperware?! Less washing up, too!

  14. Nicole - Champagne and Chips August 23, 2015 at 12:12 pm #

    Oh my goodness, that looks like my idea of heaven and so easy too. Now as soon as I work off all the problogger calories…

    • thehungrymum August 23, 2015 at 11:19 pm #

      So, so easy! Pah, calories schmolories – life is short 🙂

  15. grabyourfork August 23, 2015 at 4:16 pm #

    Yum. This looks so tasty and easy! Peanut butter and chocolate is always a winner!

    • thehungrymum August 23, 2015 at 11:14 pm #

      easy and tasty is right. Did I mention they are utterly addictive?

  16. Hannah August 23, 2015 at 6:34 pm #

    These look great. Anything peanut butter is always so moreish. A friend once bought me something similar and put the pieces in two layers in a tub. I didn’t realise, and finding the second layer was the highlight of my week!

    • thehungrymum August 24, 2015 at 8:49 am #

      She’s a good friend 🙂 Peanut butter plus choc is all the yum!
