The Famous School Cafeteria Peanut Butter Bars

Posted in : Dessert on by : Master Chef

I finally found the recipe to recreate those yummy nostalgic peanut butter bars from back in my elementary school days. I didn’t like most of the things served on those cafeteria trays, but these were my favorite! I’m here to say that this recipe was tried and true by yours truly– a true copycat and I had to share. Enjoy!

Ingredients

Bars
16 TBs unsalted butter
1.5 C peanut butter (I used chunky because that is what we had–use what you prefer)
1.5 C granulated sugar
.5 C golden brown sugar, packed
1.5 tsp kosher salt
1 T vanilla
4 eggs at room tempurature
2 C flour, sifted

Icing
1 C confectioner’s sugar
.25 cup peanut butter, melted
Milk (amount depends on desired thickness of icing–start with a couple of tablespoons and go from there).
