DISNEYLAND CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BARS INGREDIENTS

If you are a fan of Disneyland Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars, then the good news is that you don’t need to wait until your next trip to the Magic Kingdom to enjoy them! Disney’s chocolate covered peanut butter sandwich is now easy to make at home with this simple copycat recipe.

Butter and Chocolate

You will need:

  • 14 whole graham cracker sheets
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 8 tbsp butter (softened)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp shortening
  • 4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CHOCOLATE: you can swap the semi-sweet chocolate chips for other types of chips or even use chunks of chocolate broken up. Just remember if you use milk chocolate, the peanut butter squares might be sweeter.

SHORTENING: if you can’t get shortening, you can use 1 tbsp oil in its place and microwave at 50% power rather than full.

Kitchen tools needed

Here’s what you will need to make these peanut butter treats at home:

  • 9″X13″ glass baking dish
  • Small glass bowl
  • Rolling pin
  • Microwave safe bowl

HOW TO MAKE THIS DISNEYLAND CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BARS RECIPE

STEP ONE: Spray a 9″x13″ glass baking dish with non-stick spray.

STEP TWO: Place two whole graham cracker sheets in a zip bag and crush with a rolling pin, meat mallet or the bottom of a glass until they are in crumbs, then set aside.

STEP THREE: Mix the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt then slowly add the powdered sugar, a little at a time. Mix until combined.

STEP FOUR: Add the chocolate chips and shortening to the microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between until the mixture is smooth. Be careful not to overheat.

STEP FIVE: Add the first layer of graham crackers (6 whole sheets) in the baking dish.

STEP SIX: Pour one-third of the chocolate in a thin layer on top of the crackers.

STEP SEVEN: By hand, add fistfuls of the peanut butter mixture on top of the chocolate layer and flatten. Cover as best you can without breaking the crackers below and use up all of the peanut butter mixture.

STEP EIGHT: Layer another one-third of the chocolate on top of the peanut butter and add another layer of crackers (another six sheets) before topping with the rest of the chocolate.

STEP NINE: Sprinkle the crushed graham crackers on top.

STEP TEN: Leave to cool in the refrigerator for one hour at least before cutting into squares to serve.

STORAGE

Store in the refrigerator once you have cut up the squares so that the chocolate and peanut butter are kept cool. Otherwise, if it is a warm day, you could have a melted mess on your hands.

Tips for making peanut butter squares

  • Don’t leave the shortening out. This helps the chocolate chips melt and become that silky, tasty ingredient that makes the Disneyland version so delicious. It also makes it easier to spread the chocolate around.
  • Should you have any problems spreading the chocolate, cut one corner from a zip bag and use it as a piping bag. Add the melted chocolate and squeeze it out of the open corner then move along the baking tray to easily spread it around.
  • If you don’t have non-stick spray, you can use parchment paper to line the baking tray. Sometimes this can make it easier to lift out the squares once you have cut them too.
  • If you want some extra crunch to normal peanut butter chocolate bars with graham crackers crunch, you can use crunchy peanut butter as opposed to creamy versions.
