Old School-Deja Vu Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 0 mins

Here is one for the chocolate/peanut butter lover, old or young. I say old first; this was served as the dessert on our lunch tray, 1st grade through 12th grade, usually on "Pizza Friday." And one would not think twice by propositioning a trade of their rectangle slice of frozen pizza for your peanut butter square. (This is where that term you learned in social studies class, "bartering", came into good use!) Can be served for up to 12-24 servings; 24 small servings or 12 nice big servings, like the ones served in the cafeteria at Whitehall School District, Pennsylvania. To this day, they are still served! (Prep/cook time does not include chill time).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix first 5 ingredients together with a heavy duty mixer.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the milk chocolate on stovetop.
  3. Spread in a 13x9 inch pan and top with the melted milk chocolate.
  4. Chill; cut into squares upon serving.
  5. *Forthe Old School Deja Vu effect: serve each square in a muffin/cupcake paper.

I was thrilled when I found this recipe! Good old school days! I made them, but spread it on a jelly roll pan. How long does it need to chill in the fridge? My anxious self waited almost 45 mins before trying one, but the peanut butter part wasn't set. Doesn't seem like it will ever set.....
