Original recipe yields 12 bars

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Beat butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar, and egg in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in flour, oats, 1/3 cup peanut butter, baking soda, vanilla extract, and salt until dough is well mixed. Press dough into prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes; sprinkle with chocolate chips immediately. Let chocolate chips melt, about 5 minutes. Spread chocolate over cookie with a spatula or knife.
  4. Mix confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup peanut butter, and milk in a small bowl until smooth. Add more milk if mixture is too thick to pour; drizzle over chocolate and allow to cool. Cut into bars to serve.

These were super easy, but the chocolate chips would not spread for me, despite the fact I poured them on the bar immediately after removing from the oven. I would have preferred the chocolate be more of a ganache-ish full layer on top, rather than a smattering of chocolate chips. The PB topping was tough to drizzle, too, despite quadrupling the milk to thin it out. Taste was good, but these were tough to make look "good". Thanks for the recipe, Briecookinglove!

Rating before eating, because like lovestohost posted, could not spread the choc chips. What a disappointment. I have another recipe that is cooked at a 400 oven, where the chips are easily immediately spread them. I even took these out, turned oven up, covered dish with foil and put back in another 5 minutes. No luck. But, I guess we should have had a clue looking at the picture given - those choc chips are not melted and spread either. Waiting for them to cool to try. Used what was left of caramel sauce, mixed with peanut butter and a little confec sugar and milk to get consistency I wanted to dribble over top.
