TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:60 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • GLAZE:
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup chopped peanuts

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Pour into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan.
  • 2. Bake at 325° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Allow chips to soften for a few minutes, then spread over bars.
  • 3. For glaze, in a small bowl, beat peanut butter and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Add enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Carefully spread over warm bars; sprinkle with peanuts. Cool before cutting into bars. Yield: 5 dozen.
