I've been making these rich and tasty cookie bars for a lot of years. I recently came across the recipe again and decided it was time to share. You'll want a tall glass of milk or some coffee to enjoy with these bars. MMMM good!
These are super for the holidays, but great any time of year.
PEANUT BUTTER FINGERS
1/2 c. margarine or butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. peanut butter (crunchy or creamy)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. flour
1 c. oatmeal
1 (6 ozs) pkg. chocolate chips
(or 1 cup)
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease 9" X 13" baking dish; set aside.
In large bowl, cream margarine and sugars until smooth; add egg; blend well. Blend in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth, then add remaining ingredients, except for chocolate chips.
Spread evenly in pan and bake for 20 minutes. As soon as you remove from the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips while bars are still hot. Wait a few minutes so they can melt, then spread evenly with a knife. Cool at least 15 minutes before adding glaze.
2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 Tb. milk
Combine all ingredients together until creamy. Drizzle over cooled chocolate.
Let stand until set. Cool to room temperature; cut and serve.
