This recipe I found on page 150 of paula's cook book entitled
"Lady and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook"

Then I added a frosting of my own.

Mine are darker because I used dark brown sugar instead of regular sugar

Warning: With the dark brown sugar they are very sweet

Ingredients

PEANUT BUTTER BARS
1 stick
butter
1/2 c
peanut butter
1 1/2 c
sugar (i used dark brown)
2
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
self rising flour (i did 1 cup plus 1 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt)
CHOCOLATE FROSTING
2 Tbsp
butter
1 tsp
vanilla
1 c
powdered sugar
1 Tbsp
(rounded) hersleys baking cocoa
water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
For the bars:

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees, Grease and flour a 9x13 pan (I only had a 9x11 so I used that).
Melt butter and peanut butter together over hot water. (I put it in a pan and on simmer it was fast and easy)
2
Pour into remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour into greased and floured pan and bake 25-30 minutes. (I did 35 as mine was in a smaller pan.) Cook and cut into squares.
3
NOTE: Besides the things I stated above at the 30 minute mark I took them out of the oven and topped with the frosting and returned it to the oven 5-10 minutes more.

For the frosting just mix all together adding enough water to make a regular icing and frost the hot bars. The frosting will be thin and melty at this point. Return to oven 5-10 minutes until it bubbles or looks really hot and remove and cool. cut and serve
