3-Layer Peanut Butter Bars

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 Bars
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 cup peanut butter (I used creamy)
2 eggs
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! :)

I'm linking up this yummy recipe to Whipperberry...they never let me down with amazing recipes, crafts, decor, and party ideas. Go check them out here!

I share your love affair for Peanut Butter and chocolate. I have many recipes for this heavenly pair.(Hence why I clicked on your link.) One of them is almost identical to this and includes homemade icing.
When completely cool, frost with:
2c powdered sugar
2T cocoa powder
1/2tsp vanilla
Canned milk for consistency (not too much)
I often will double the batch, it's pretty thin icing for a 13x9. And sometimes I throw in some extra cocoa powder. :D
Happy Baking!!!

How fun to see you over at Laughter! We might be moving with a promotion for the hubbers. Funny enough, those are the two places I would choose first. I've been to Seattle twice and love it. I think I would be happy there. And I have always wanted to go to North Carolina. No matter the place, it'll be fun and an adventure for sure!
