Oatmeal, peanut butter and chocolate chips make these bars a big hit with kids of all ages. Since I always have these basic ingredients on hand, I can whip up a batch anytime.

What You Need:

(Makes: 3-4 dozen)

1/2 cup of butter, softened

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of packed brown sugar

1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter

1 egg

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 cup of all-purpose flour

1/2 cup of quick-cooking oats

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1 cup (6 ounces) of semisweet chocolate chips

For the Icing:

1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar

2 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter

2 tablespoons of milk

What to Do:

STEP 1) In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugars and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture and mix well. Spread into a greased 13x9 inch baking pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

STEP 2) Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

STEP 3) Make the Icing: by combining all the icing ingredients; mix well. Drizzle over the top. Cool completely. Cut into bars.
