peanut butter bars

You can either make them with a layer of melted chocolate and peanut butter frosting or just do chocolate frosting. My favorite is with this chocolate frosting recipe - it is delicious! Try it both ways and decide which you like best!

Peanut Butter Bars

3/4 c butter

3/4 c sugar

3/4 c brown sugar

3/4 c peanut butter

2 eggs

1/2 tsp vanilla

3/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 c flour

1 1/2 c oats

Cream together the butter and sugars. Add peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla and beat until smooth. Add dry ingredients and mix the oats until a firm dough is made. Grease a cookie sheet and spread mixture in the pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden.

Chocolate Butter Frosting

1/2 c butter

3 1/2 tsp cocoa

6 Tb milk

1 tsp vanilla

Boil together, remove from heat and add powdered sugar until desired consistency.

*If you are doing the PB frosting, sprinkle a bag of milk chocolate chips over the peanut butter bars after they come out of the oven. Once they are melted, spread evenly. Cool completely then spread on PB frosting.
