If you couldn't already tell, we're HUGE peanut butter fans. These peanut butter squares are definitely a favorite. They taste just like the ones we had in elementary school... hence the name old-school. We weren't suppose to trade food in elementary school and I loved these so much I tried swapping something for them under the table and got caught. I spent the rest of the lunch period with my head down. To bad I didn't get to eat the peanut butter square, it would've been worth it!
OLD-SCHOOL PEANUT BUTTER SQUARES 1 cup light corn syrup 1 cup sugar 1 cup peanut butter 5 cups crisp rice cereal (puffed rice)
Combine corn syrup and sugar in medium saucepan. Stir until well blended and cook on medium heat until boiling, stirring occasionally. Let boil for about 30 seconds and remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and mix until well blended. Stir in cereal and mix until well blended. Pour into greased 9 x 13 pan. Lightly spray hands with cooking spray and then press mixture into pan. Cool and then cut into squares.
I'm a previous stay-at-home mom of 8 years who joined the working world again as the Food Service Director over our local school district and a high school lunch lady. I have 3 kiddies. Makayla (Miss Picky Pants) is 14, Sophie (Worm) is 13 and Chase's 9. I LOVE to cook! If you're looking for plain ol' mom food... you're in the right place! I'm always looking to cook up new recipes and simple, inexpensive meals. My goal's to share old favorites and to make new ones. Thanks to everyone who stops by and visits my blog! You inspire me to keep posting (even when I have a difficult time managing my time!)
