I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER. And when it's combined with chocolate, I'm in heaven.
So when my Young Women's youth group had a Bake Sale to earn money for their girl's camp this summer, I was all about signing up to bring a batch of Peanut Butter Bars. The Bake Sale coordinator, Alicia, gave me the recipe...it was easy and turned out great! I brought home an empty pan from the bake sale :)
Alicia's 3-Layer Peanut Butter Bars1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 cup peanut butter (I used creamy)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour
2 cups oats
chocolate frosting (found recipe here, but I'm on the hunt for something better...)
Preheat oven at 325. Cream first 6 ingredients. Sift soda, salt, and flour. Add flour mixture & oats...barely mix. Press dough on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 13 minutes. (do not over bake!) Chill bars in the fridge until cool (about 30 minutes). Spread peanut butter on bars...1 1/2 to 2 cups. Spread chocolate frosting over top. Enjoy peanut butter & chocolate heaven!
** The chocolate frosting recipe I found here, didn't turn out how I'd hoped...so if any of you out there have a favorite chocolate frosting recipe, please send it my way! :)
