Do you remember these peanut butter bars from school? Back in the day when school lunches we’re actually good.
Not too long ago, school lunches were all homemade. I remember the lunch ladies infamous chocolate cake, cinnamon rolls, and the famous peanut butter bars.
But today is a different story. Everything has to be made in bulk and laws have been passed to ensure the kids have “healthy” lunches.
That’s when dessert was taken off the menu. Along with a number of other regulations that have most kids wrinkling their noses.
In elementary school I actually looked forward to lunch, but by the time I got to high school, I started packing my own.
I’d love to hear about your own experience in the comments below.
But today I thought we’d take a little trip down memory lane. Back in the ‘ol days when lunch ladies made everything from scratch.
One of my favorite desserts were these no-bake peanut butter bars.
I’ve heard peanut butter treats were quite popular back in the day because it was a government commodity and provided in large quantities to lunchrooms.
All you need is some creamy peanut butter, graham crackers, confectioner’s sugar, butter, chocolate chips, and a dash of sea salt.
This recipe is fool-proof and one of my go-to’s when I need something to whip up for a family get-together, birthday party, or a weekend treat!
