School Cafeteria Peanut Butter Candy Recipe

A few weeks ago I celebrated my 8th wedding anniversary with my amazing husband. I had no idea what to get him because it seems like the man already has everything. After wracking my brain I remembered that he is always talking about how much he loved the peanut butter candy they used to sell at school. With that in mind I found several recipes online, but none of them tasted right. Finally, after some trial and error I came up with my own recipe that tastes just like the kind from the cafeteria at school. It was just too good to keep to myself, so here it is:

School Cafeteria Peanut Butter Candy Recipe

3 Cups creamy peanut butter
3 Cups powdered sugar
8 Tbsp butter--super softened
6 cups crushed rice crispies
1 bag milk chocolate chips

Combine peanut butter, powdered sugar, softened butter, and rice crispies. It will take a lot of stirring so you may want to mix it in two halves.

After you've mixed your ingredients pour them into a 9x13 pan LINED WITH WAX PAPER. This part is important because you can just lift the paper out to serve the candy. Press the mix firmly into the pan and cover with the entire bag of melted chocolate chips.

Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour so the chocolate can harden.

My extremely picky husband loved his present and said it tasted EXACTLY like the kind from school. Luckily for him, I hate peanut butter and chocolate, so he got the whole tray to himself.

What foods from your childhood do you guys crave?

Linking up to THESE great parties.


  1. Peanut butter and chocolate? Can't go wrong with that. I just started following you and would love a follow back.
