Skippy’s cocoa peanut squares, aka Peanut butter Cocoa Krispies treats (1959)
A NEW merry mix-up of America’s 2 favorite flavors!
Delicious cocoa and fresh-roasted peanuts…this pair of flavors is tops on America’s treat parade. Now they get together in a heavenly new confection you can make in minutes.
Kellogg’s Cocoa Krispies supply the chocolaty flavor, Skippy Peanut Butter adds its true peanut taste… and Karo Syrup helps perform the happy marriage. Sweet and frivolous as young love, and equally simple.
… only Skippy blends so beautifully with other good things to eat. You’ll have fun proving this true and proving you’re the equal of any professional sweets-maker — first time you make delicious Cocoa Peanut Squares.
Re-name ’em if you like — maybe after a rich uncle you’re trying to impress. Important thing is to make and enjoy them. Guaranteed habit forming.
