Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Saturday, October 20, 2012

These remind me of elementary school lunch. I remember going through the cafeteria line anticipating the dessert. This was one of my favorite desserts. I love how the top layer would peel off leaving the oatmeal bottom. Good memories. I also remember looking through the garbage cans for a retainer a couple of times. Did you ever have to dig through the garbage for your retainer?

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Mix Together:
1 C Butter
1 C White Sugar
1 C Brown Sugar
2/3 C Peanut Butter - I like Adams Natural Peanut Butter

2 eggs
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Vanilla
Mix until incorporated and then add:

2 C Oats
2 C Flour

Preheat over to 350 F. Spread the dough evenly onto a jelly roll pan and bake for 20 minutes. Do not over bake. Once you remove from the oven spread 1/2 - 3/4 C peanut butter on the hot bars.

Let cool. Spread with your favorite chocolate frosting. I like to melt chocolate chips with a 1/4 C butter and spread that on top. Feel free to use whatever you like.
