Taste-wise these were great, but they were a mess to serve. As some suggested I heated the sugars with the butter and also cut down on the white sugar to 1/4 cup. Since I had an open container of applesauce I decided to replace a 1/6 cup of the butter with that and probably saved 10 calories, lol. I realized that my big pan was still at someone's house so I used two pans. I had trouble getting the topping to spread on the bottom without it pulling everything up. When it had cooled I cut is as well as I could and just scooped up the remnants with a fork. It was plenty sweet with the sugar reduction and tasted great. It was amazing how the peanut butter shone through even though it looked like it was just chocolate.
I think the mixture needed more moisture in it to make the bottom stay together.
FYI- I used Old Fashioned Oats. I had oatmeal yesterday for breakfast and then a few of these treats and couldn't eat dinner last night. Plenty of fiber going on.
