Recipalooza: Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

If you are a peanut butter fan these are Fab-u-lous! And? Super easy and fun to make!

What you'll need

1 1/4 c. peanut butter
3/4 c. butter softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. oatmeal (quick or old fashioned)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 recipe of chocolate frosting

How you do it

Heat oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl cream one cup of peanut butter, butter, and both sugars, until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Add flour, soda, oats, vanilla, and salt. Mix well.

Spread dough into sprayed 9x13 pan.

Bake for about 15-18 minutes, until edges start to brown.

Remove from oven in a particularly cute way.

Plop dollops of the remaining 1/4 c. of peanut butter on top and return to oven for a few minutes to melt it down.

Remove from oven and spread evenly over bars. Let cool down for about 15 minutes before spreading chocolate frosting over top. Place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours to cool. Cut into bars. ENJOY!
