Double Peanut Butter Bars with chocolate frosting

Double Peanut Butter Bars with chocolate frosting

 

I made these Peanut Butter bars to take up to YW’s camp as a treat for the girls the night I went up to visit. This was the first time I made this particular recipe.

OH.MY!!!! I think I can only make these when I am going to be sharing. They are so freaking good! I think I could have eaten the whole pan by myself. They were VERY popular up at camp to.

You use a Jelly Roll pan, so you are getting quite a few bard with this recipe – great to share or take to a potluck! Chocolate and Peanut Butter is a match made in heaven!

 

Ingredients for the bars:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2½ cups peanut butter (divided)
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt

 

Frosting:

 

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1-2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a Jelly Roll Pan (18x13x1) with cooking spray

Cream the sugar, brown sugar, and butter together. Add the vanilla, eggs, and 1 cup peanut butter and stir to combine. Add in the oatmeal, flour, baking soda and salt – mix together. Spread dough into your jelly roll pan. Bake for 15 minutes (until golden brown). While the bars are still hot, spread the other 1½ cups peanut butter on top – it helps to drop spoonfuls all over the top of the bars, then spread after the peanut butter has started to melt. Let cool until the peanut butter has become solid again – put in the refrigerator to have it firm up faster. While the bars are cooling, mix together frosting ingredients and then spread on top of bars.

Eat and enjoy… Try not to eat the whole pan on your own 😉
