I am looking for the same receipe. The bottom was a brownie texture, it wasn't crunchy and the bottom was the color of peanut butter with chocolate frosting. Better Crocker had a box version but removed the item from the stores. If anyone has the receipe, please share.

A: Yummy Peanut Butter Squares
Pan size: 1/2 - 12" x 16" Tray
Servings per pan: 48
Peanut butter: 2-1/2 cups
Honey: 1 1/4 cups
Vanilla: 2 tsp
Powdered sugar: 1/2 cup
Dry milk 1 1/2 cups
1. Measure peanut butter into mixer bowl.
2. Warm honey, add to peanut butter.
3. Add vanilla.
4. Add powdered sugar.
5. Gradually add powdered milk. Do not over mix.
6. Pat into pan and smooth with rolling pin.
7. Store in refrigerator, completely covered, until serving time.
This is most like the one that I finally obtained from a school in my district. Mine had the powdered milk but also oatmeal and granulated sugar instead of honey or powdered sugar. Unfortunately, the recipe I obtained has been changed to be healthier since I ate them as a child so the butter has been reduced, etc. and it's just not the same :(

Mine also had chocolate on them - unlike any melted chocolate chips I have ever had. One of the secretaries told me they used to use a premade chocolate something or other but it's no longer available. Wish I knew what it was so I could look for the recipe for the chocolate part. If I remember correctly, it was somewhere between the texture of fudge and plain melted chips cooled to a fairly hard texture.

Thank you, Wanda! I'm pretty sure these are the ones I absolutely loved in school, as I grew up in the same general region: South Carolina.

The ones I remember had no chocolate whatsoever and were really just like a dense, very peanut buttery Rice Krispy square without the marshmallow taste. I think your recipe is dead-on and I can't wait to try it!!

The ones I remember were chewy sweet salty with whole peanuts no chocolate during the time Jimmy Carter was president.

are you talking about the peanut butter squares that always came with the pizza on Friday's? If you are talking about them I have the recipe that I got from one of the people that used work in one of the cafeterias. I made them once and they were great!
Kathy- did you ever share the recipe? I, too, at one point called the elementary school I attended asking for the recipe but all the new workers were clueless of what I was asking for! Amazing so many people all want this recipe!
