Frosted Peanut Butter Bars created by flower7

There were very few things my friends and I would eat from our high school cafeteria. This was one of the few. It was a small town, so someone could always get the recipe from someone. Hope you like them!

    The bar part of the recipe is correct. However, for the right thickness of the bars use a sheet cake size pan or I use 2 - 9 x 13 pans for the right thickness. Also, here is the correct frosting recipe for the peanut butter bars: 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 3/4 cup peanut butter, 3/8 cup margarine/butter and then add 1-3 teaspoons of milk to thin slightly to spread the frosting.

    I'm so excited!! I have literally been searching for this recipe since high school. I was telling my kids about these the other day and I decided to try to find it one more time so I can share this lunchroom fav with them. Thank you for posting this.

    A delicious memory of my childhood. I take a bite, close my eyes and remember a simpler time. I had no trouble with this recipe, frosting turned out delicious and spread fine on the warm bars.

    The bar part was very good but the frosting was not the greatest, it wouldn't spread! I added extra milk and peanut butter to make it the consistency and flavor I wanted
