Chocolate Peanut Butter Magic Bars for #Choctoberfest

It's the best time of year: #Choctoberfest! I think we can all agree on one thing this year... 2020 needs more chocolate.

#Choctoberfest is our annual celebration of chocolate recipes, now in its 6th year. I've teamed up with some talented food bloggers to share dozens of milk, dark, and white chocolate dishes for this year's virtual event. Plus, we've pooled our resources to bring you an exciting giveaway you don't want to miss!

These bars are a snap to make, and my oh my do they disappear quickly!

You can use just about any combination of candies in these since the base isn't infused with a strong flavor profile. If you have different sized Reese's candies, those will work great too - just chop them up and you're good to go!

I've never made "magic bars" before, and couldn't believe how tender and cookie like the base came out after baking. These bars are studded with chocolate and peanut butter flavor and are just delicious! Enjoy with a glass of milk, and share - if you feel like it!

I sent some of these bars home with my dad, and took some to my daughter's swim lesson one weekend just to get them out of the house quickly. I didn't think my will power was going to hold up with these yummy, gooey, candy filled bars!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Magic Bars
1 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs
1 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 cup melted butter
3/4 - 1 cup peanut butter chips 
3/4 - 1 cup milk chocolate chips 
8 Reese's Peanut Butter cups, chopped
7-oz (half a normal 14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine graham cracker crumbs, cocoa powder, and melted butter in a medium bowl and mix together until everything is evenly combined and crumbs are well coated with butter.
  3. Press the crumbs into the prepared baking dish into an even crust.
  4. Sprinkle the peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, and chopped Reese's peanut butter cups evenly over the crust.
  5. Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the entire surface of the candies.
  6. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 25 minutes, until edges are lightly browned and the milk looks like it's been absorbed into the candy and crust.
  7. Allow to cool completely and slice into bars.
