Peanut butter is one of the best kind of butters I know. I didn’t think this growing up, in fact I never really even liked peanut butter that much (crazy..huh). I wasn’t a PB fan until I was an adult…go figure! Now, I have to limit my peanut-butter in-take (ha ha) who knew that would happen. I actually feel so sorry for all those people allergic to peanuts. If you are not allergic then read on and make these rich and delicious cake bars.
I remember the first time I made these delicious bars, I fell in love. I probably ate most of them too. I made these for a road trip and was so happy I did. The fact that this recipe is a sheet cake makes them easy to take for a family get together or taking to a BBQ or picnic. One thing that is sure to happen is that these Peanut Butter Texas sheet cake bars will get eaten up quickly and people will be asking for the recipe.
