Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

Justin’s birthday is this week.  He requested some treats to bring to work.  So yesterday Rebecca and I made two batches of bars.  The first is peanut butter chocolate bars.  This recipe is from my MIL.  I definitely wouldn’t call this a “healthy” recipe.  You can sub most ingredients for natural ones.  The only one I didn’t really was the powdered sugar in the frosting.  I know you can make your own powdered sugar, but I didn’t.  I figured it wasn’t too critical since I was giving most of them away 😛  They sure taste good.  But not something to indulge in often.  I forgot to take pictures until they were all cut up.  And I only had my small camera handy, so not the best shot.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

1/2 cup brown cane sugar or sucanat
1/2 cup cane sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup flour (you can use whole wheat)
1 cup rolled oats

6 oz. chocolate chips
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1-3 Tbsp. milk

Cream sugars and butter.  Add egg and vanilla.  Beat.  Stir in flour and baking soda.  Add oats.  Stir.  Spread in a greased 9×13 pan (this is kind of tough.  It will be a very thin layer.  I usualy have to use my hands to do it, lightly dusted with flour).  Bake at 350 for 18 min.  While it is baking mix the sugar, peanut butter, vanilla and milk to make a frosting.  Take bars from the oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Drizzle frosting on top.  Swirl chip and frosting over bars (the chips should melt).  Let cool.
