Best Peanut Butter Fingers EVER!

This is an oldie but a goodie.  A looong time ago I posted about  my favorite school lunch treat

This weekend my sister in-law invited us over for dinner, I offered to bring a dessert.  I was so happy that my sister in-law that is allergic to peanut butter wasn’t going to be there so that I could take these yummy Peanut Butter Fingers (that sounds meaner than it was supposed to, we still love her even though she can’t eat peanut butter). 

Strangely this is also the most popular post on my blog, I’m guessing people (crazy ones like me that grew up loving these from the cafeteria) Google the recipe and mine is one that comes up.  Sadly, they don’t serve them any more due to too many  peanut allergies among the students.
