Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 10 ounces milk chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli)
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts or mixed nuts
Instructions
  1. Cream 1/2 cup peanut butter, butter and sugars together. Add egg and vanilla. Add all dry ingredients, blending well. Spread dough into a buttered 9x13-inch pan and bake at 350 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes.

  2. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Let stand 5 minutes, then spread the chocolate chips to cover the bars.

  3. Combine powdered sugar, peanut butter and milk, adding enough milk to make a thin consistency. Drizzle over chocolate layer. Sprinkle with chopped nuts.

  4. Cut into bars for serving.
