    Empire920's Note:

    For chocolate-peanut butter lovers! This recipe is a family tradition. Our family couldn't wait to get Minnesota bars mailed to us from Grandma every Christmas. My sister and I would also make them with our grandmother when we would visit. I don't know where the name came from--my dad spent some of his childhood in Minnesota.

      I think they are called Minnesota bars because of the oats which is a crop that is grown there.

      I am giving it five stars for fool-proofiness. I used chunky peanut butter and we lived. I like peanut butter but my son thought that it was overwhelming. I think that next time I might add another half cup of chocolate to even it out a little more.

      This was a great gluten and dairy free recipe. My husband thanks you a hundred times over. Finally he has a dessert/treat to bring to gatherings that everyone can enjoy. It was very easy to make. I microwaved the chocolate chips and the peanut butter in a bowl for a minute and it stirred right together. I store mine in the refrigerator to keep the chocolate firm.
