Peanut Butter Tandy Cakes

Hi Sunflower, Here's that recipe. I hope it is the one you are looking for. It's sure yummy! They only last a day or so in our house.

Peanut Butter Tandy Cakes

1 3/4 c. granulated sugar 2 c. flour
2 Tbsp. oil 1 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. melted butter 1 c. milk
4 eggs peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine sugar, oil and melted butter. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add remaining ingredients (vanilla, flour, baking powder and milk) and mix well. Spread batter into a greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until done and lightly browned. Remove cake and spread a thin layer (more if you wish) of peanut butter over hot cake. Place cake in refrigerator to chill and let peanut butter set.


1 (12 oz.) bag milk chocolate chips

Melt chocolate chips and pour over cake. Spread quickly. Cut into squares before chocolate hardens. Keeps best in refrigerator. Even better than Tastycake!

Peanut Butter Bars

I have a great recipe that makes Peanut Butter Bars that taste very much like Reese's. I get raving compliments whenever I make them. They are ridiculously easy to make, too! Enjoy!

Homemade Peanut Butter Squares (Taste like Reese's)

2 cups powdered sugar (must be powdered, not granular sugar)

1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs, or crushed low-salt pretzels

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 (or 1 stick) butter (OR margarine; you can also use 1/2 cup butter-flavored Crisco shortening plus 3 tsps of water; the Crisco plus water is a butter substitute, Crisco has 50% less sat. fat than the butter)

1 1/2 cups (or 12 oz) milk chocolate chips OR semi-sweet chocolate chips

Melt margarine, add to it the graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and peanut butter. Mix until well blended. If it gets too crumbly, add a LITTLE bit more butter. Line a 9 x 13 inch pan with wax paper. Pat mixture into a 9 X 13 inch pan, pressing flat with another piece of wax paper. Melt chocolate chips in microwave (on low, for a short time, check and stir every 30 seconds) and when melted, spread on top of mixture. Refrigerate until firm.

Cut into squares. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

NOTES : To make cutting easier, first let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before cutting into squares.

Hi Sunflower (LOVE your name!) My brother, sisters, friends and I all remember the delicious peanut butter bars they had in our elementary school in the 60's, and none of us has ever come across them again. They didn't have chocolate, but they DID have Rice Krispies in them - soooooo good! They were a little on the sticky side - I remember them peeling them off the waxed paper with a spatula and being cut into perfect squares. I recently found a recipe on the Crispy Rice cereal box (The America's Choice version of Rice Krispies) that I haven't tried yet, but plan to. Here it is:

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars


4 cups rice cereal
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margerine
1 cup (6 oz) choc. chips


1 cup choc. chips
1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter

Place cereal in large bowl. Set aside. In a 2-qt saucepan, combine 1 cup PB, brown sugar and butter. Melt over low heat, stirring occasionally for 3-5 minutes. Add PB mixture to cereal; stir to coat evenly. Add 1 cup choc chips; mix well. Spread into a greased 9x13 pan. In a 1 qt saucepan, combine 1 cup choc. chips and 1/4 cup of PB. Melt over low heat, stirring occasionally 4-5 minutes. Spread choc. mixture evenly over bars. Refrigerate, cut into bars when set. Makes 24 bars.

Sounds yummy. Let me know if you try them, and I'll let you know if I do. Thanks to everyone for all the great recipies!
