  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the 3/4 cup peanut butter. Combine the oats, flour and baking soda; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended. Press the dough evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. In the microwave or over a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter together, stirring frequently until smooth. Spread over cooled bars and allow to set up before cutting into squares.

Oh my goodness! These were fantastic! Chewy, moist, peanut buttery, chocolaty! I added a tsp. of vanilla, used crunchy peanut butter, and 1 tbsp. of butter to the topping to make it easier to cut after refrigerating...but there was no need to...these went too fast to chill in the fridge! If you like PB, chocolate and oatmeal, you will love this one, and if you don't, I'll eat it for you! Thanks Sara!

I'm a bit mixed on these. Not what I was expecting. Much drier than I anticipated - I cooked them for 20 mins. The sides puffed up and the middle sort of fell. Would cook for only 15 min next time. I'd also use smooth peanut butter instead of crunchy and maybe reduce the oats? The peanut flavour was very subtle and they aren't as sweet as I expected though I think I like them better for that. I'll keep eating them and see how I feel when they are gone.

These are sinful!!! So delicious, so addictive! I made them exactly as the recipe stated and they were a bit too sweet for me, so I changed it the second time around....less sugar (1/2 c brown sugar, 1/4 cup white), less butter (3/4 c) and less choco chips (1 cup) with less pb (1/3 c). They were out of this world good!! I did bake them for 30 mins instead of 20. SENSATIONAL!!! Thanks!

I left my 8yr old daughter make this. It was very good. We added 1 tsp. vanilla as someone suggested and baked for 30 minutes as someone else suggested. We ended up cutting the bars much smaller. They are very thick so next time we will try making these in a bigger pan. We also cut down on the chocolate. In a bigger pan thinner bar cookies will result and following the chocolate recipe as listed will give plenty of chocolate covering. Will definately make these again.

These were fantastic! I'm not sure what they reminded me of...kind of a cross between a Reese's Cup and a Butterfinger candy bar. The edges got crispy but the middle stayed soft. I eneded up baking for 30 minutes until the center was set. I let these cool overnight before cutting. Tip: don't try to cut them right out of the refrigerator. The topping will be rock hard!

These were good, but I feel that the butter content was too high and the PB content too low. In the future I would probably reduce butter to 1/2 cup and increase the PB to 1 1/4 cup. The flavor of the bars as written were good, but more buttery than peanut buttery. Also, I found 15-20 minutes of baking to be way too short. My bars were not cooked until after 35 min. Not sure why.

They tasted good, but they are nothing special.

Good. But tasted more like an oatmeal cookie with chocolate on top than a peanut butter cup.
