Rustic Peanut Butter “Cups”

April 18, 2011

I’d like to think I keep my promises.

(Even if they are slightly slow on the uptake.)

I made a promise to my good friend Dave, Berklee grad and musical genius (check out his band

Biscuits and Gravy)   to mail him some baked goods.

This was about three years ago?

Hey, hey. Better late then never, come on now.

Rustic Peanut Butter Cups

So even though these are very clearly BARS with a peanut butter bottom and a chocolate top… they taste almost EXACTLY like the beloved Reeses peanut butter CUP. They do have an, erm, more “rough around the edges” appearance, hence the “rustic” adjective. Because I like to give it flair like that.

Talk about easy. 5 ingredients. No baking. Delicious results.

Make them, eat them, send them to friends (preferably in a timely manner).

Rustic Peanut Butter Cups, as seen on AllRecipes 


  • 1 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter or margarine, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners’ sugar, and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan.
  2. In a metal bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the prepared crust. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.
