A Sweet Ending
I’ve had my eye on this recipe since 2001. I spied it while looking through my old Taste of Home magazines. I finally tried it this year and since trying it, I have made it several times! (Why did I wait so long?)
This receipe reminds me of the old special K bars except you bake this one for a few minutes. I rationalize, even though it is dessert, it must be healthy ‘cause it’s full of oatmeal!! Actually I can talk myself into most food being healthy :-)
They are fast to make and we think they are very good. Let me know what you think!
2/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/3 cup peanut butter
In a mixing bowl, combine the butter, peanut butter, corn syrup and vanilla. Mix well, then stir in the oatmeal. Press into a greased 13 inch x 9 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, for topping, melt chips and peanut butter in the microwave for approximately 1 min. Stir until blended; spread over warm bars. Cool completely. Refrigerate 2-3 hours before cutting.
