Peanut Butter Desserts

Talk about the Best Disneyland Food there is! You are in for such a treat with my Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwiches from Disneyland! I am without a doubt a chocolate and peanut butter fanatic. When I first devoured this treat from Disneyland for the first time in 2011, I knew I had to go home and make my own version. It is too good to only enjoy at Disney 🙂

We LOVE visiting Disneyland Park! There are so many amazing treats to try.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwiches from Disneyland

The beloved Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich from Disneyland Parks! Note, Disneyland has a new version of the Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich, not quite as good as the original they used to sell, but still a fun option. I like my homemade version better than the new version served at the Parks.

Find these Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwiches at the bakeries around Disneyland Resort. Pooh Corner in Critter Country is my favorite place to pick up snacks!

I was very happy with my homemade version! You can’t tell very well in the “Disneyland” version, but there is a thin layer of chocolate between the peanut butter and graham cracker.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups good quality chopped milk chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons shortening
  • 12 halved graham crackers
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  • Melt chocolate and shortening over a double boiler, stirring to melt.  I use a small saucepan, boil water, reduce heat to low and place a heat proof bowl over the saucepan then add my chocolate, stirring until melted.
  • Dip each graham cracker into chocolate and let set up on wax or parchment paper.  Stick in the freezer for a few minutes to speed this up.  Spread 2 tablespoons (or a cookie scoopful) of peanut butter over the top of each dipped graham cracker then place in the freezer for 10 more minutes.  This step is important.   While the peanut butter is freezing, remove chocolate from heat and stir, so it cools slightly and thickens up a touch. Slowly and carefully spoon melted chocolate over tops and sides of peanut butter.  This is where the patience and work comes in.  Use a small spoon working the chocolate around the edges and sides.  You'll then use a little plastic knife to run the chocolate around the edges and clean it up a little.  Let set up, (stick back in the freezer for another 10 minutes) then with a spoon, drizzle chocolate over top to get the "lines" you see in the pictures above.  (If your chocolate is too thick at this point, set it back over the double boiler so it melts a little bit).
  • My reviews...Definitely keep these chilled just like Disneyland does, they melt rather quickly once your fingers get on them.  It was tricky to get mine to look quite as pretty as the Disneyland ones, but with a little patience you can do it!  Have fun and keep them chilled!

    These sound awsome! I have a little trick to help keep the chocolate from melting as much when handled. Now it sounds a little gross, but all candy bars and chocolates have it.. Gulf wax. You can find it either by the jell-o or canning products at grocery stores. U only need little bit, about 1/10 of a bar per 12oz. Of chocolate. It takes slightly longer to melt the wax, but just keep stirring the chocolate until there are no more clumps. And yes, it is safe to eat in small amounts.

    Hi Jenny!
    So shortening is basically margarin and/or coconut fat? Do you reckon I can use the latter for these wonderful cookies? Thank you and I love your recipes so much!

  3. Jesica

    I tried one of these when I was at Disneyland the other week because I had read before how good you said they were and oh my goodness!! They were delicious!!!! I’m dying to make my own! (I live NO where near Disneyland!!)

    What quality brand of milk chocolate and peanut butter would your recommend?

    THank you! 🙂

  4. Ariana

    I absolutely love this recipe!!
    Since stumbling upon this recipe on pinterest, I have made it a handful of times this year. Everyone just loves them. Thanks so much for sharing, this recipe is a keeper. I love finding baking recipes that don’t require baking in the oven. Very simple to make 🙂

    Definitely do keep these refrigerated as they melt quickly at room temperature.

  5. OMG! No, seriously! I’ve actually never been to Disney but chocolate covered graham crackers are ridiculously good and I’ve never even seen a version with peanut butter. I LOVE peanut butter! If I went to Disney and saw these I’d come home a whole dress size bigger! So now I’m torn between pinning this recipe and throwing it away and pretending I never saw it. 🙂

    I had to make these twice on the weekend, because everyone loved them and was fighting over who would get the last one.

    Sooo good!

  7. I think I have a solution for the tedious part of putting the chocolate around the sides…I’m a chef and specialize in cakes. I think you can use a plastic disposable decorating bag, fill it with the melted chocolate, then pipe the chocolate around the edges. This would be a lot faster. They sell a decorating tip (real cheap) which I believe is Tip #48, that has a flat opening, which I think would work perfect for this. Another plus is that the warmth from your hand (while holding the decorating bag) will keep the chocolate soft. You can find the bags and tip at any cake decorating or bakers supply store. Craft stores like Michaels, Hobby Lobby and such, also carry cake decorating supplies. I hope this helps. And thank you for the recipe. My two sons are chocolate-peanut butter addicts! So I’ll definitely be making these real soon.

    I made these and they were a hit! They are a little time consuming and it is quite unfortunate that this recipe only makes 12. Because they run out too quickly! My fiancé and kids will not stop asking me to make more! I used jiff pb and nestle choc which worked fine but I may try to put powdered sugar to thicken the pb like a previous commenter said. Seems like u have to freeze the pb long and it still got gooey when I started putting the chocolate on top. Anyhoo, Thanks for this recipe!

  9. Aimee

    what if you dipped them in the chocolate? wouldnt that be easier and get a uniform edge? maybe half at a time for less mess.
    or dip bottom -dry, then top and sides. adding some coconut and powdered sugar to the peanut butter and mixing would make it able to be handled so this would make it really simple for uniform dipping. i make “peanut butter balls” just with those ingredients and can roll into balls with no mess or sticking. then i roll in cereal or nuts or dried fruit, chocolate chips,graham cracker crust.
    what do you think?
    these look delicious
    take care

    This Disneylander is impressed! Fantastic trip report, love the pictures and the choc/pb/graham treat looks terrific. Well done. I’ve already pinned it to my “YUM” board on Pinterest. 🙂

    I think this recipe would be excellent with Almond Bark or Candy Quick. They dry and set with a hard, smooth surface and taste delish.

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. Donna L

    What type of chocolate did you use? Mine melted but was way too thick, even with extra shortening/butter.
    Tasted ok, but was too thick to work with.

  12. Marsha Clark

    This look wonderful! I might try using Keebler Chocolate Covered Grahams to make these even quicker. I don’t think differences in chocolae should make too much difference.

  13. mardi roberts

    In the Sept. issue of the Ladies’ Home Journal they had an article about Bake Sales. Your recipe for peanut butter cup s’mores bars by Melanie Martin was featured but I could not find it on your website. I also used the “search” function but still could not find the recipe. Can you help me? Thanks!

  14. YOU AND YOUR BOYS MAKE A LOVELY FAMILY. I KNOW YOU ARE PROUD. THESE SOUND DELICIOUS. I MAKE SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THIS. I USE RITZ CRACKERS. PUT PEANUT BUTTER BETWEEN TWO CRACKERS AND DIP IN MELTED CHOCOLATE. I ALSO USE A HALF BAR OF PARAFFIN WITH MY CHOCOLATE. THESE KEEP VERY WELL OUT OF FRIDGE. THEY ARE EASY TO DO.

  15. Donna

    OMG. I loved your photos of Disneyland, i would like to visit one day for sure!! And that chocolate peanut butter slice… I’m in New Zealand and i would like to try to make the slice but what are the crackers?? What texture are they.. Are they salty.. And is the peanut butter smooth or crunchy.. And when your recipe says shortening is that like a product called Kremelta? (Would u use it to make chocolate rice bubble crackles for a child’s birthday party?) I’m new to pin interest so I hope I receive your answer…. Thanks Donna

  16. So… I’m currently in the process of making these, but me being me… I’m making it crazy complicated.
    The ones that are currently in the making have a layer of vanilla ice cream after the peanut butter. I hope they come out as amazing as yours look!!!

  17. Ginny Etienne

    Hey, as a long time candy maker, I thought I’d share a tip with you. Instead of using shortening, use 1/2 a bar of paraffin wax. It will make the chocolate spread easier, keep it from melting and add some sheen.

    Don’t get freaked-out, there’s wax in most chocolate covered candy that you buy.

  18. I looooved these!! Peanut butter is one of my favorite foods, so I always love finding tasty desserts with PB in it. Thanks so much for this great idea!

  19. well I grew up in so Ca and been there many many times but a long time ago. Loved your pictures! I think your version looks better and I’d pick yours to eat! All things peanut butter and chocolate are the best..thanks for sharing

  20. Kristina

    These look delish! I can’t wait to try them. I will try it with Guittard’s Chocolate Melt and Molds. This is already tempered chocolate and won’t melt as quickly in your hands. I use it for my truffles and peppermint bark. Good stuff.

  21. Hello there, just was aware of your weblog through Google, and found that it’s truly informative. I?m gonna be careful for brussels. I?ll be grateful if you happen to proceed this in future. Lots of other folks can be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  22. I’m really impressed together with your writing abilities as well as with the structure to your blog. Is that this a paid subject matter or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice weblog like this one these days..

  23. Techkim

    I have been dying to make these but havent had the time. I am Disneyland for the next 2 days and showed your picture to the park staff and sent me to the right place. Oh my goodness theses are so good. I am so glad you posted these and how to make them. Ps the graham cracker is dipped in chocolate first.

  24. Brenda

    These look really good. I wonder how a layer of marshmallow creme would be on there?? Something like a smore, might be worth a try. I’ll let you know.

  25. It’s crazy but I just had one of these Peanut Butter sandwich treats for the very first time last week. I found be at it’s very best at room temperature, and not right out of the cool case they are kept in at the Parks. I like your recipe and will give it a try soon. But I’m sure it wont be as pretty as yours or Disney’s, Thanks for the ideas.

  26. Ana

    I made these this past weekend for an over-nighter with my girl friends. I quartered the grahams (since I was making a bunch of mini desserts) and mixed in a little powdered sugar with the peanut butter. Though they took time to make (I obediently did all the freezing and was glad I did), it was much easier than I expected. And of the six desserts I made, THIS is the one everyone was talking about. I will make these again and again. Thanks so much for the recipe!

  27. Mary Ann

    They look delicious. I would recommend using chocolate covered graham crackers. It would get rid of the first two steps of your recipe.I’m definetely going to try these. Thank you

  28. I have zero patience in the chocolate drizzling department, but I love everything peanut butter, chocolate and graham cracker. I need to make these ASAP!!

  29. It is I rarely find in the Internet as entertainment and you have something interestinghere. Your page is lovely, your graphics highlight, not to mention that you refer to, the use of relevant what you’re talking. Of course you are a in a million, good!

  30. I find errors in this blog a bit, but it caught my attention, after I thought I would let you know, I really like it. I like this post, and will tell my friends this site.

  31. Oh my gosh, those sound incredible and look even better! They remind me of the chocolate covered graham crackers I’ve bought before near the cash register at Starbucks. But obviously better with peanut butter and chocolate tucked inside. 🙂

    Being an East coast girl, I’ve never been to Disneyland – only Disneyworld. So it’s neat to see all of your pictures from your day trip – thanks for sharing!

  32. oh dear. these look heavenly. we are headed to disney soon… but i think im going to have to make these sooner 🙂 thanks for sharing!!

  33. Ooh these look yummy and i agree too tasty to just enjoy at Disneyland. Ive only ever been to Disneyworld in Orlando before but love it!! Really want to try the california one though, im such a disney fan!

  34. Heather

    Oh these make me want to go to disneyland even more. i’m trying to get my husband to go make a trip down there this holiday season. I’ll just make these cookies and tell him if he wants more he’s just going to have to go down there and get them himself. thanks!

  35. mindy

    Had these and are my favorite too. Gonna make them today – I might add a bit of powdered sugar to the pb to thicken it up a bit.

  36. I had such a blast when I went to Disneyland, but ended up spending $18 for mac n’ cheese. Not cool!
    The Soarin’ Over California ride was great, but it made me so motion sick that I had to close my eyes for the last half. hahaha So lame of me!

  37. Christeen M.

    Loved the pictures! Have to look for that app. Also, I am so looking forward to trying your version of the chocolate peanut butter sandwiches as well as Disneylands’s. I have to wait for summer to end to go again as my pass is not valid during the summer months. So when August hits, I’m heading to Critter Country! Thanks for your recipes! BTW, a friend at work, her cousin is one of the hillbillies.

  38. casualgal

    Thank you so much for the recipe!!! I haven’t stopped salivating since you posted the first picture of them. I’m curious what they charge for these at Disney Land??

  39. Meredith

    Looks delicious! I made something like that the other day only mine had a layer of marshmallow fluff on top of the peanut butter. It was to die for.

  40. I am definitely trying these! We love Disneyland so much, but we have to save for two years in order to go there! We are on our first year of saving for the next trip because I could seriously live there. I am dreaming of the Monte Cristo sandwich as I write this! I love your pictures, too. Miss you much, neighbor!

  41. Wow, they look just about identical! I bet they taste amazing. I wonder if I could make these with sunbutter, it’s kind of runny. Never know until you try! Thanks for the yummy recipe! Looks like you guys had an amazing time 🙂

  42. Oh my goodness! I’m a strong believer that Disneyland is the happiest place on Earth and have been there a ton of times…yet, why have I never stopped at Pooh’s bakery to try these?! They look amazing. I cannot wait to make them!

  43. Wow those look so much like the Disneyland ones! Beautiful and tempting. I could probably go for one right now….although it’s only 7:30 in the morning…ha!

    I’m planning on going to Disneyland in November, so I think I will have to track down Pooh Corner and try these out. But first I’ll make these for a party we’re having so I can compare!

  44. Jenny, Those look amazing! Thanks for sharing a little bit of Disney with us:) We already follow you on Instagram. I am in love with the app as well! Find Kim and I under “Outathyme”.

  45. Yum! I’m thinking of a 4th of July dessert… I’m also thinking this might be great with a marshmallow with or instead of the peanut butter… I know what I’m doing this weekend.

  46. These look delicious! My husband is chocolate peanut butter fanatic as well. Perhaps I’ll make him a treat 🙂 I’m with you on the instagram app too! LOVE that app!

  47. Cheryl

    WOW! These look sooo awesome and easy to make! I cannot wait to make some of these scrumptious delights! Instagram..haven’t tried it, just might have to! Thanks for yet again another amazing recipe!

  48. Jenny these look…amazing! Disneyland is going to be calling you asking if you can come cater their concession stands b/c your version looks better than theirs does! 🙂

    And the shot of you w/ your boys is just wonderful. Saw the post on Amanda’s blog the other day of you and her, Marla, and gang in NOLA and it also looked sooo fun!

    And Instagram. I am the only iphone user who doesn’t use it. I should change that, huh!
