Peanut Butter Stripes

This is another one of those recipes that has been around forever and I've been making it for my family for years. AND it's another FAVORITE of ours. It's just hard to get enough peanut butter and chocolate!!

Don't overbake these, they should be a little bit chewey in the middle. They are delicious with a glass of very cold milk or a cup of hot coffee or tea.

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
¾ cup creamy peanut butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups all purpose flour (Gold Medal)
Chocolate Chips
Peanut Butter Icing

Cream butters and sugars until fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and soda and give it a stir. Add oatmeal and stir then add flour and mix well. Press into a 15½ x 10½ bar pan.

Bake @ 350° for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips (desired amount). Return to oven for a few minutes till the reach spreadable consistency.

Spread evenly.

Cool completely. Spread Icing over top.

For the Icing:
3 cups powdered sugar
¾ cup peanut butter
milk, till it reaches spreadable consistency

Be Blessed!
