Peanut Butter Fingers

This recipe hails from my neighbor's house and it is scrumptious.  These peanut butter bars make wonderful after school treats or Scout meeting delicacies.  Maybe it's the peanut butter frosting or the chocolate layer hidden inside, but they are finger licking goodness. 

I involve the children in baking and cooking on a daily basis.  They are more than eager to sniff the vanilla, taste the cinnamon, and stir the batter.  They were feeling a bit neglected in the photo taking so I indulged the kids with a few pictures this morning.  This post is in honor of my littlest helpers.

Here's what you will need:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2-4 Tablespoons milk
Here's what you do:

  • Cream the butter and sugars.  Blend in the egg, peanut butter, soda, salt, and vanilla.  Stir in the flour and oatmeal.

  • Spread in a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  The edges will be brown.

  • Sprinkle with chocolate chips and let stand 5 minutes.  Spread the melted chocolate carefully over the bars.  Let the chocolate harden.

  • You mix the peanut butter, powder sugar, and milk to create a thin frosting.  I like to keep it a little stiff and frost the bars.  My neighbor drizzles the peanut butter glaze over the bars.

  • Refrigerate and let the bars set up.

  • Serve and enjoy!
A friend and I have been debating the peanut butter and chocolate duo.  She feels they should each become a solo act.  I think they work best together.  Do you like peanut butter and chocolate together?

This looks nice. I don't know how a mixture of peanut butter and chocolate would taste (salt and sugar). I'd prefer having them separately.

Thanks for the comment. My friend is probably cheering at this moment. LOL : )

You probably already know about my hatred for peanut butter, so usually I'd say keep them as far apart as possible, but there are a few occasions where they work well together. PUPPY CHOW!
