Chocolate Peanut Butter Square

In my never ending quest to find the same chocolate peanut butter squares I remember from my school days I tried this recipe. While it comes close, much closer than previous tried recipes its still not right. Everyone it seems but me likes this one and thinks its pretty close. But I still think somethings is not right. Oh well, lucky for me I live close enough to the school districts cafe that I can buy them whenever I want.
1 cube butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. peanut butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanila
2 c. flour
2 c. oats
Cream the first 5 ingredients together. Add remaining ingredients. Spread on greased cookie sheet with your hands. Batter is thick. Bake at 325 for 15 minutes. Do not overbake. Frost with chocolate frosting while warm and cut.

  1. Okay, So here's another recipe for you.
    3/4 c butter
    3/4 c brown sugar
    3 eggs
    3/4c sugar
    3/4 c peanut butter
    3/4 t soda
    1/3 t salt
    1/2 T vanilla
    2 1/2 c flour (I us whole wheat with out a problem)
    2 c oatmeal

    Mix the first 5 ingredients add soda, salt and vanilla. Mix well, add flour and oatmeal. Spread ont on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 9-12 minutes. They won't look done, but if the edges are slightly browned they are!
    While cooking mix
    1/3 c peanut butter
    4 c powdered sugar
    1/4 c milk (more if too thick)
    1 1/2 t vanilla
    Mix and drop by spoonfulls on bars as soon as they are taken from the oven. Let sit on bars for a minute to soften then carefully spread.
