Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars


1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
3 cups rolled old-fashioned oats
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 cup chopped peanut butter cups


Cream butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla with electric mixer on high.

Stir in flour, salt, and baking soda, all at the same time. Stir in oats. Last, add 2 cups of the chocolate chips and 1 cup of the peanut butter cups and stir them in (or use clean hands, if the dough is too stiff).

Press cookie dough into a greased 9x13-inch baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until lightly golden and cookies are set in the middle.

Remove from oven and spread remaining peanut butter cups over the top. Using a spreader, smooth peanut butter cups over the top. Next, spread the chocolate chips over the peanut butter cup layer. The chocolate will melt on its own. After 10 minutes, use a spreader and evenly spread the melted chocolate. Cut into 12 bars. Enjoy!
