Recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars


Remember those Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars that were popular during the 50’s and 60’s? If you’re not old enough to remember, don’t worry, they’ve become popular again; Retro is alive and well! The following recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars is an adaptation from a neighbor, Patty Maughan, whose mother was a school lunch baker in the 70’s. These cookies were a favorite with the school children, and also with the adults who were lucky enough to eat school lunch. Over the years, they have become a family favorite.

Bar cookies are the fastest cookies to make, since the dough is simply spread out onto a jelly-roll pan and baked. These cookies have a thin layer of peanut butter spread on the top as soon as they come out of the oven; it soaks into the baked bars, adding to the moistness. When they’re cool, chocolate frosting is spread over the top. Canned chocolate frosting is a real timesaver, and it actually tastes good. It’s okay, however, to spread them with homemade chocolate frosting if so inclined.
