This is a new recipe I just tried out for the first time. I got the recipe from my friend Tammy (thanks, Tammy!). They tasted fabulous-- although next time, I may cut the frosting in half or maybe not use peanut butter in it. My husband doesn't like peanut butter mixed in with his baked goods, so he's not a fan of these bars. Oh well-- more for me.
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar, packed
3 cups quick cooking (not instant) oatmeal
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 cup flour
Spread this mixture into a greased 9X13 pan and bake at 350° for 18 minutes. It will look like it is NOT done but do not over bake. let it cool.
For frosting, melt together..
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/2 semisweet chocolate chips
Spread this on top and sprinkle with 1/2-3/4 cup of crushed peanuts. Let frosting set before cutting into squares.
