Peanut Butter and Chocolate Bars

Here is my latest peanut butter and chocolate bar love. It is soooo good. I am totally in love with this bar. It is a little on the crunchy side, especially the topping, but I guess that is what I love about them. I made these for Mr. Pickypants lunch this week, they didn't last very long. Guess that means I will just have to make another batch........

  • 1/2 package semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups oats, quick cooking
  1. Grease and flour a 9x13x2-inch baking pan; set aside. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or top of a double boiler over hot water.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter with peanut butter; beat in sugar, egg, and vanilla.
  3. Combine flour, soda, and salt in a separate bowl; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Stir in oats. Press about 3/4 of the mixture into the bottom of the pan. Spread melted chocolate chips over the top. Crumble remaining peanut butter mixture over the melted chocolate. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for about 20 minutes.
