Glazed Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Bars

Don't they look scrumptious?!

My blogger friend Mary from One Perfect Bite shared the recipe for these yummy treats a little while ago. When I saw them I knew we would have to try them here sometime. So with the youth from church coming here tonight I decided now would be the perfect time to try them out. They are simple and don't require a lot of work or special ingredients. The butterscotch chips add a nice change of taste to the usual chocolate and peanut butter combination. They are rich so cutting them in small pieces makes sense. I hope you enjoy them and make sure you visit Mary's blog. She shares delicious recipes and makes them all look so easy! Thanks Mary!

¾ cup butter, softened
¾ cup creamy peanut butter

½ teaspoon salt

1¼ cups milk chocolate chips
