I think this might be the recipe you're looking for. I found it in The Fleischmann Treasury of Yeast Baking from 1962. Email me back to let me know you got this.

(Makes 2 braids)

Prepare dough. When ready to shape, combine Planters Creamy Peanut Butter and Fleischmann's Margarine. Mix until well blended.

Punch down dough. Divide in half. Cut each half into 3 pieces. Roll each piece into a 14 x 3 inch strip. Spread peanut butter-margarine mixture down center of strips. Bring edges to center and pinch to seal. Form three strips into a braid, sealing ends well. Repeat with remaining three strips.

Place on greased baking sheets. Cover;let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about one hour.

Bake in moderate oven (375 degrees F.) about 20 minutes. Cool. Frost with confectioners' sugar frosting and sprinkle with chopped peanuts if desired.
