Personal Notes:
Dianne made these peanut bars when we were kids & they were absolutely delicious! It was rare for Dianne to bake because her preference was to work outside, doing farm chores, which she did very often.....but her peanut bars are unforgettable because they were so good! I recall it was very time consuming & a very messy job making them.
When I mentioned to Mom (Kay McGraw) that I was submitting the recipe, she said the original recipe came from Genevieve Laverty, who we all remember as a fabulous baker.
