    musiclady12076's Note:

    These were the peanut butter bars that our school cafeteria used to sell for 25 cents a bar. I am sure they had to make multiple pans a day, these were so good! Very easy to make and really tasty! No baking required. Prep time does not include refrigeration time.

      These were yummy! Wanted something easy and this did the trick! I'm a peanut butter fanatic and couldn't have been happier. Followed the recipe exactly. Brought them into work and they were gone in a flash! Thanks for sharing!

      Excellent recipe. Made as directed. I am starting to create a section of recipes for those that that were in the schools when I grew up. I'll include this easy one.

      Just delicious. Perfect bit of crunch from the brown sugar in the peanut butter layer. The chocolate later was smooth and melt-in-your-mouth textured. Just what I remember from my youth and a super alternative to those orange wrapped things you get in the stores!!
