Sometimes two things just belong together, like chips and salsa, cookies and milk, pancakes and syrup, or bacon and eggs. Peanut butter and chocolate are another pair that is a match made in heaven! Like seriously...HEAVEN!! These Peanut Butter Bars are the ultimate combo of chocolate and peanut butter!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9x13 pan by spraying it with nonstick cooking spray.
Cream sugar, margarine, and eggs until well blended
Add vanilla peanut butter, mix well.
Stir in dry ingredients, including oats.
Spread into the prepared 9x13 pan and bake for 22 minutes.
Cool for 30 minutes then spread with chocolate frosting. (recipe below)
For the Frosting
Mix powdered sugar, cocoa and margarine in a mixer.
Add vanilla and milk, mix until creamy.
This is HALF of Kara's recipe, but it should be doubled to go in a jelly roll pan. No, really, it's margarine. I know, butter or shortening are what you may be tempted to use, but I agree with my friend, Kara, it just works!Bars can be frozen for up to 3 months.
