I saw this recipe on a blog called sixsistersstuff.com. When I saw the picture, I had to try it. They are very good and make a lot, so you may want to serve them at a large dinner, or you may be left with tempting leftovers. My guests loved them!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
We really loved the crunchiness of this bar, and the sweet chocolate just topped it off!

Ingredients

1 c
sugar
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 c
butter
1 tsp
vanilla
2
eggs
1 c
peanut butter
2 c
oatmeal (not quick, but old fashioned)
2 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream sugars and butter together. Add the vanilla, eggs, and peanut butter and combine. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together. Spread dough on a greased jelly roll pan (18x13x1"). Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes (until golden brown). While hot, spread 1 1/2 cups peanut butter on top. Cool so that the peanut butter has become solid again. (They can be put in the fridge so they set up faster). Spread your favorite chocolate frosting on top and cut into bars.
