Peanut Butter Bars Recipe

Monday, January 26, 2009

We got this recipe from AnnaLisa and quickly became hooked on it. We love the chocolate/peanut butter combination and we can't pass a month without either Glen or the kids requesting these as a treat at least once!

The ingredients:

BARS:
1 cup butter
2/3 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups oats
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 -1/2 cup peanut butter (for glaze layer)

FROSTING:
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
2-3 Tbs. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup butter, softened

Mix first six ingredients together, then add the remaining four and mix again. Spread in cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes (do not overcook). While peanut butter crust is baking mix the frosting ingredients until smooth and creamy.

Right after removing from the oven, dollop gobs of peanut butter over the top. After the peanut butter has softened a bit, spread it in a thin layer. Then add layer of frosting. Makes 24 bars.

Enjoy!
