Lunchroom Peanut Butter Bars - Just like the ones from elementary school!

You know the ones. Those magical bars of peanut butter goodness topped with a layer of crunchy chocolate. I always knew when one of those babies showed up on my lunch tray that it was going to be a good day. They were my favorite dessert! If you’ve been missing that lunchroom treat as much as I have, it is indeed your lucky day. I have an easy recipe that will take you back to the good old days of good old fashioned, home-cooked elementary school food.

Lunchroom Peanut Butter Bars - Just like the ones from elementary school!

I had so may favorite lunches at Lincoln Elementary School in Idaho Falls, ID. Chili with homemade cinnamon rolls, mashed potatoes with turkey gravy and homemade chocolate cake…So much goodness came from that cafeteria! But not many things could be the delectable peanut butter bar.

Lunchroom Peanut Butter Bars

Yield: 9-12 bars

Serving Size: 1 bar

Ingredients

  • ¾ c. butter
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 12 graham crackers, crushed into crumbs
  • 1 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x8 or 9x9 pan with aluminum foil so foil hangs over the edges so bars can easily be removed. Set aside.
  2. Place butter in the microwave and heat for 1 minute, or until melted.
  3. Stir in graham crackers, powdered sugar, and peanut butter and stir until well combined. Press mixture into the bottom of the pan.
  4. Place chocolate chips into the bottom of the prepared pan. Pour chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave for 45 seconds. Stir, then heat for another 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
  5. Pour chocolate over peanut butter bars and spread smoothly and evenly over top. Allow to cool for three hours then cut the bars while the chocolate is still soft. Cover and serve when the chocolate has hardened.

      Oh man. Our lunchroom food was the best! There were only a couple things I didn’t like. Those were the good old days!

  1. says

    If we were to barter, what could I trade for you to make me a pan of these? No. Don’t.. I’m watching my figure. Wait. Actually – maybe this could be my last hurrah.. back to the bartering.. what’s it gonna be? YUM!!!!

  2. says

    I too went to elementary school in Idaho falls, idaho and my life may be complete with this recipe! I know school lunches aren’t what they were when I was growing up… I dont even force my kids to eat them…but I looked forward to lunch and these were especially a favorite day! Thank you sooo much for sharing!!

    • Alli says

      Whitney, I love that you also went to elementary school in Idaho Falls! Those were definitely better lunch days, that’s for sure. I hope you enjoy the peanut butter bars!

      Hi, Michelle! It looks like all the ingredients and measurements are correct. Did you use enough graham crackers? Twelve graham crackers is 12 whole rectangular crackers and not 12 squares. Could that be it?
