I found another bar recipe that we just loved. I made it yesterday for a cookout at a friend's house and we all kept nibbling until they were just about gone. I found this recipe over at Everyday Insanity. Please visit Cindy as I know you will be impressed with her many great recipes.

Peanut Butter Bars ( adapted from Everyday Insanity)

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix together till smooth and add:

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 cup oats

Pat mixture in a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle 1 cup chocolate chips on top. Let sit for 5 minutes. When chocolate is melted use a small offset spatula and spread chocolate. Let cool slightly, drizzle with:

Peanut Butter Glaze
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons peanut butter
Mix together and add enough milk so you can drizzle the glaze over the chocolate. *I spooned the glaze into a sandwich size ziploc bag, sealed and snipped the corner. I then squeezed the glaze through the small hole and drizzled over the bars.

They look delicious and I love that glaze on top. This would definitely be a winner at my house.
