Peanut Butter Squares

Peanut Butter Squares

I made the Peanut Butter Squares recipe in the 90’s, I had gotten the recipe from a co-worker.  The only thing you should do is make it in the cooler months.  Because the chocolate that goes on the top of the squares, will melt from the heat in the summer (June to mid September).

Peanut Butter Squares Recipe

Peanut Butter Squares

½ cup sugar

½ cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

½ cup margarine, softened

1/3 cup chunky peanut butter

1 cup flour

1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal

½ tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease a 9 x13 pan.  Mix sugars, egg, margarine and peanut butter in large bowl.  Stir in flour, oatmeal, baking soda and salt.  Spread in pan.  Bake 17 – 22 minutes or until golden brown; cool.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Frosting

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

¼ cup chunky peanut butter

2 Tbsp. milk

Use enough milk to make it spreadable; then reserve 1/3 cup of the peanut butter frosting.

3 Tbsp. cocoa

1 Tbsp. milk

Stir into remaining frosting.  Add more milk until spreading consistency.  Spread cocoa frosting first, then drop peanut butter on top by teaspoonful; then swirl for marbled effect.
