Time is flying this semester! I just finished up my food service management practicum experience. Two rotations down, only one to go before graduation in May. Wow…
In an effort to thank my practicum site for being so welcoming to me as a student, I wanted to surprise them with a little treat. I’m fairly confident that my love for peanut butter was very well known by the end of the practicum experience. I say that because they finished the day with a bag of goodies for me that included my two favorite treats! An Amy’s Candy Kitchen Peanut Butter Chip Caramel Apple (SO. GOOD.) and a chocolate covered pretzel with peanut butter! Thank you!
Back to the treat I brought in. I was asked for the recipe several times, so I knew I needed to share it with everyone.
White chocolate. Peanut butter. Graham crackers. Mmmmm…
They were easy to make and oh so delicious. Here’s to my food service management rotation and the wonderful people I spent 6-weeks with!
Peanut Butter Truffle Bark

This is a yummy, easy treat to make when sharing with others. Recipe comes from: The Gunny Sack
- 2 , 16 ounce packages white chocoalte, melting chips I used Ghirardelli
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 9 full sheets graham crackers processed in food processor
- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Minis
- 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
- Line a 13 x 9 pan with foil and lightly grease.
- Melt 1 package, or 16 ounces of white chocolate. You can do this in a double boiler, or in a microwave safe bowl. If using the microwave, microwave the chocolate in 15 second increments and stir each time. Although it is tedious, do not microwave the chocolate for more that 15 seconds at a time, the chocolate can easily burn. Continue this process until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
- Spread the chocolate into the foiled pan. Spread evenly and allow the chocolate to harden.
- While the chocolate is hardening, make the peanut butter mixture. Using a hand or stand mixer, mix together the peanut butter, softened butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Spread this mixture over the hardened chocolate and press the mixture down. Add the mini Reese's on top of the peanut butter layer, pressing each candy into the peanut butter layer, if necessary.
- Next, melt the second 16 ounces of white chocolate using the same process as before. Layer this chocolate over the peanut butter mixture. Top with chocolate and peanut butter chips immediately. Allow the chocolate to harden.
- Once the chocolate is hardened, lift the bars from the pan using the foil. Cut the bark into small pieces.
- Share & enjoy!
