Jim Bars

These cookies are called Jim Bars in honor of the friend who got me hooked.  The children love them. My partner doesn’t agree they are a cookie and tends to call them candy or fudge.

No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

2 c. powdered sugar
2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1 c. peanut butter
3/4 cup butter, melted
2 c. (12 oz.) milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted.

Spray 9 x 9 in pan with Pam. Mix confectioners’ sugar, graham crackers, peanut butter and butter in medium bowl until well blended. Scrape into baking pan and press into even layer. Spread melted chocolate over top. Let sit 20 min and then slice into bars. Refrigerate until firm. Then cut again in the places you cut earlier.


  1. Back home we call things like this “squares” because well, you cut them into squares. I don’t think of them as cookies either.

  2. I love something that is this easy and sounds this good. I am going to try them. Thanks!

  3. I make this at Christmas but make them round. They are my peanut butter bon bons. Love them!
