Peanut Butter Fingers

A perfect back-to-school snack. Did you ever have these with your school lunches? I think it's the only way the school ever got people to eat lunch on fish stick day. It worked for me! These are super quick and easy and delicious. Every time I make them they literally fly off the plate. Enjoy! And make sure you have a nice tall glass of milk on hand, and plenty of people to share these with because they are addictive!

Peanut Butter Fingers

1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
dash salt
2 - 3 Tb. water
3 - 4 cups powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray jelly-roll pan (half sheet, 13 x 18 inches) with cooking spray.
2. In bowl of large electric mixer cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars until light and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until incorporated, about 1 minute. Add dry ingredients and mix on low just until all ingredients are incorporated, 1 - 2 minutes.
3. Bake for 12 - 14 minutes, until very light golden brown (it will still look doughy, but you don't want to overcook or they will be dry). Cool completely.
4. In medium bowl, melt butter and chocolate chips in microwave on high for 1 minute, stirring every 20 seconds. Stir until completely melted. Add remaining frosting ingredients, adjusting water and powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached. Spread evenly over bars and cut into squares to serve. Serves 35 - 48.
