One of my favorite Christmas treats my mom used to make was Peanut Butter Bars. I love peanut butter and chocolate and this is like an entire pan of Reese's Peanut Butter cups, so of course I would love these. This was one of the recipes I included in my 5th grade recipe book that I mentioned in the last post.
The picture I drew to go with the recipe was very high quality (I also love the greasy PB finger smudges - you can tell this recipe is well loved even if the picture stinks!).
I think it is supposed to be me with an apron on and 2 people grabbing for the last peanut butter bar. Although it looks a lot like they are reaching for the knife and what looks like a scissors (I think it is supposed to be a spatula). I guess we can all see why I didn't become a world famous artist!
