1973 recipe from a Michigan radio program, it was the rage at that time. I have only made it a few times, with success. Forgot all about it until now looking up my old recipes.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats (twenty minute type)
- 1⁄2 cup margarine (solid type or butter)
- 1⁄4 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate syrup (Hershey's)
- 1⁄2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Combine flour, brown sugar, salt, oats, and butter well.
- Reserve out 1 cup for the top and set aside.
- Press remainder into a ungreased 9-inch square pan.
- Combine all well until smooth.
- Spread evenly over the base.
- Sprinkle the reserved one cup of base mixture over top of filling.
- Bake 350° for 30 to 35 minutes.
- Remove and cool then cut into squares.
Everyone mowed down on these and I got kudos all over the place. The kids especially loved them and asked me to make them again!
I absolutely loved these bars! So rich and delectable, I could hardly keep my hands off of them, so I didn't... I will be making these again soon, but I'll need to invite some friends over so DH and I don't over indulenge!
Mmmmmmmmmmm!!! I don't think you can go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate and this is a great way to pair them up! I used Lite Hershey's syrup (lower sugar/cal.) and couldn't find 20 min. oats so used Old Fashioned (5 min.) Not too sweet (b/c of the lite syrup probably). Very tasty and easy to put together (took me more than 10 min, though). Thanks for looking it up and posting!!
