Tried and True Dessert Recipes

I've been a baking fool this week, and made these two yum-yum-good desserts, so am sharing the recipes with y'all…

Tried and True Dessert Recipes

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars with Chocolate Chips

Yummy Peanut Butter Bars Recipe via @ShoppingKim


Bar Ingredients

1 stick butter (margarine would work, too)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 cup quick oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Glaze Ingredients

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
1-2 TBsp milk

Mix all bar ingredients above. Bake at 350 degrees in 9×13 pan for 20 minutes. While dough bakes, mix up glaze ingredients.

When you remove pan from oven, top with 1 cup chocolate chips while the base is still hot. When the chocolate starts to melt, drizzle over the glaze and blend together with a spatula. Cool before cutting (if you can resist the temptation) and enjoy.

And I just had to try the next recipe after shopping in Sioux Falls

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup margarine (one stick)

Great, now I'm hungry again. What shall I bake now?
