These delicious bars are a family recipe. They are a great combination of chocolate and peanut butter - and the best part is, they use ingredients you usually have on hand. Whenever we take them to parties, they vanish in a flash. To make cookies, drop the dough 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes at same temperature.

Eliza, these are dangerously delicious!! I made as is (making bar cookie), but used regular old fashioned oats since that's what I had on hand. They worked fine. These make a very thick bar cookie, so you can use a slightly larger pan if you would prefer them a little more fluffy. I did also sub light margarine which I usually do as well. These are fantastic and will be made again!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag Game.
I think these are marvelous! They recipe is easy and simple as well as being easily moldable to each persons preferences. Like I used brown sugar and honey...only 1/2 stick of butter added 1/4 flour and they turned out fluffy moist and fabulous! I will use this as a base recipe over and over!
I'm not sure why, but my kids did not enjoy these at all. I couldn't pin-point the reason why I didn't care for these either. I had to throw out half the dish after 5 days of not being consumed. So, I won't be making these again. Thanks for sharing, though.
