I honestly joke about this recipe…as I tell people that this tasty treat is why my Honey Bee married me. This is what he had to say…
“Peanut butter fingers. The words alone cause my mouth to water. It has been said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Alas, I confess that this is (at the very least partially) true. Vicki, a.k.a. Queen Bee, found the perfect remedy to open my heart with her peanut butter fingers long ago in our youth. She recently prepared a batch of these delicious delights – for dinner guests! Not to worry though. There were a few put aside for leftovers. Peanut butter fingers. Mmmmmmmm…..”
See why I love him 🙂
I have been making Peanut Butter Fingers since I was about 10 years old. I think that originally this was a bake-off recipe in a small paper cookbook that my mother had…I don’t know what happened to that cookbook, but so grateful that I wrote the recipe down when I got married and left home 🙂
This recipe was a favorite for my parents and my brothers. When I got older, Peanut Butter Fingers became Honey Bee’s favorite dessert the first time I made them for him. And needless to say, they became Jennifer’s favorite. It goes without saying that our family goes crazy for the chocolate and peanut butter combo!
I don’t make them that often any more, as Honey Bee and I would eat the whole panful. But as Valentine’s Day is special for our loved ones, I decided to make Peanut Butter Fingers.

Man…these are so good! They are very rich – hence, I don’t make them that often. But when I do, my family feels the love and memories from the past, and thinking of the next time we get to share Peanut Butter Fingers.
