oatmeal, dark chocolate & peanut butter bars

>> Thursday, May 26, 2011

the title of this post alone should have your mouth watering. mine sure was after i found this recipe at dinner or dessert.  you probably have most of the ingredients in your cabinets anyways (i did) and its super easy to make. my favorite part was that these bars weren't too sweet (i'm not really a sweets eater) and the pb & dark chocolate really complimented each other. serve it as a dessert or a mid-day snack!

i followed the recipe exactly so here it is...

1 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup dark chocolate chips or 1 dark chocolate bar
1 cup peanut butter

preheat oven to 375 degrees.

combine butter, sugar and vanilla and beat until creamy. beat in the eggs. add the flour and oatmeal. spread into a greased 9x13 pan and bake for 20 minutes. while the oatmeal mixture is baking, use a double boiler to melt the chocolate with the peanut butter. depending on how thick the chocolate mixture is, you can add in 1-2 tsp of milk or shortening if needed. let the oatmeal base cool and then spread the warm chocolate, peanut butter mixture over the oatmeal base. place in fridge to let cool and harden for 30 minutes. cut into squares.
