Glazed Peanut Butter Bars

I spied these in a magazine and thought they would be an easy after school treat for India and Devon (not to mention an after work treat for Greg!) These chewy and sweet bars are absolutely delicious and I bet you can't just eat one!!

3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp water
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1 /2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1 /4 cups milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, water and vanilla. Combine the flour, oats baking soda and salt,; gradually add to the creamed mixture.

  • Spread into a greased 15"x10"x1" baking pan. Bake at 325F for 18-22 mins. or until lightly browned.

  • For glaze, in a microwave safe bowl, melt chips and peanut butter; stir until smooth. Pour over warm bars; spreading evenly. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.

  • ENJOY!!!!
