Chocolate Peanut Butter Big Dippers

Posted by Christie Donn on

I promise to update this with a picture when I have one! We ate the last batch so fast that I didn't even think to get a pic 🤦‍♀️

Peanut Butter Big Dippers


  • 2 cups Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (light or dark is fine)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 12 oz. bag chocolate chips 


  1. Place all ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave until butter and peanut butter are melted, one to two minutes (time will vary by microwave).
  2. Remove from microwave and use a large spoon to stir all of the ingredients together (except chocolate chips) until they form a ball of dough that leaves the side of the bowl. Pat into a 9x13 pan.
  3. Pour chocolate chips into another microwave safe bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until completely melted. Spoon over top of peanut butter mixture and spread evenly.
  4. Allow to cool completely at room temperature until chocolate hardens again or place in the refrigerator for faster hardening. Cut into squares and serve!

These were a special treat when I was in elementary school. Nearly every kid bought a hot lunch on Big Dipper day! I'm a die hard Reese's fan, and these are even BETTER than those store bought peanut butter cups!

A friend gave me this original recipe, and I'm so glad to be able to share it!

Reminisce this holiday season and share the joy!
