    Narshmellow's Note:

    I absolutely loved School Lunch Peanut Butter Bars growing up. When I did a project for the Lunch Ladies in the School District where I live some years ago I literally begged them for the recipe. They were kind enough to supply me with the real deal.

      I love peanut butter bars! They are probably the most addicting thing in the world. For those that are looking for a frosting recipe-the best I've found (that matches the old school lunch bars) is the one on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can. I also add a couple drops of butter flavoring from the candy making aisle. It gets rid of that weird, missing something taste.

      These were easy to make but I was unsure what size of pan to use so I ended up using a 9x13inch pan and let them cook for an additional 10 minutes. I ended up sprinkling on milk chocolate chips on top of the peanut butter and then putting it back in the oven for a few minutes. then they were easy to spread over the top. my kids loved these. Thanks for the recipe
