peanut butter bars

Peanut Butter Bars

3/4 C butter

3/4 C sugar

3/4 C brown sugar

3/4 peanut butter

2 eggs

1/2 tsp vanilla

3/4 tsp 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 firm dough is made. Press batter into a jelly roll pan (a little smaller than a standard cookie sheet) Bake at 325 for 12 minutes. Do not over bake! The bars should be BARELY golden. If you over cook them they are dry and not very good, in my opinion.

Chocolate Fudge Frosting

1 cup sugar

5 Tablespoons butter

1/3 cup milk

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

3/4 cup mini marshmallows

Place the sugar, butter and milk in the small saucepan over medium-low heat and cook stirring constantly, until the mixture come s to a boil. Boil stirring constantly for 1 minute. Remove the pan from heat, add the chocolate chips and stir until melted, then add the marshmallows and stir until melted. Spread onto bars.
