Shauna’s Peanut Butter Squares

Peanut Butter Squares are one of my old standbys as far as quick and easy plus being a total crowd pleaser.  I used to live on Salt Spring Island and there was a little cafe that served these and I loved them, as did my kids.  Eventually the cafe closed.  I was super sad that I wouldn’t be able to get the squares anymore.  Anyways, I was at a party complaining about my plight (lol) and my friend said that she had the recipe.  Since that day it has been a staple for my family.  The squares are great for lunches, potlucks and road trips.  They have that quality of being a treat but also a pretty filling snack.  Enjoy!!
