"What a Dish" food blog has tempting recipes and photos, including one for Homemade Reeses Bars. Elsewhere on the site, the author mentions her mom’s B.Y.U. brownies (I love B.Y.U. brownies), so I had high hopes for the Reeses Bars. This morning, I had the necessary ingredients and a chocolate craving, so I made them. Here’s what I did:
1 c. Butter, softened
8-9 Graham crackers, finely crushed
2 c. Powdered sugar
1 c. Creamy peanut butter
First I rendered 8 full graham crackers into crumbs using my food processor.
|Crumbs in mixer waiting for other ingredients!|
I added powdered sugar, creamy peanut butter, and cold margarine (instead of softened butter) into the mixer bowl. Next time I make these, I will use real butter instead of margarine so that my bars will be more firm after chilling. Anyway, I mixed those ingredients thoroughly.
I spread the dough in an ungreased 9x13” pan. The kids were excited to lick the beaters and bowl because the batter contained no raw eggs!
