Bars, Cookies, Sweets

Reese’s® P.Bitty Bars

Sometimes, there’s not a long story to tell. I made bars and I called them Reese’s P.Bitty Bars because they are so good there should be a rap song about them. I brought them to a hockey party and now I wish I had kept some at home.

The bottom and top crumble layers are made with creamy peanut butter, oatmeal, and butter. There is a gooey chocolate layer in the middle, with mini Reese’s candies tucked neatly inside.

Get ready, bake! Preheat oven to 350°. Beat 3/4 cup softened butter, peanut butter and brown sugar until well blended.

Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Stir together flour, oats, salt, and baking soda.

Gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.

Batter will resemble cookie dough. Set 2 cups of the batter aside.

Press remaining dough into a greased 13×9 inch baking pan.

Prepare the chocolate layer: Melt 1/2 cup butter in a saucepan over low heat.

Stir in cocoa and white sugar.

Add 1 can of sweetened condensed milk; stirring constantly over low heat until smooth and thick. Remove from heat and stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla.

Spread chocolate mixture evenly over oatmeal dough in the pan.

Sprinkle the mini Reese’s candies over the chocolate.

Crumble the reserved two cups of dough over the candies.

Bake 25 minutes or until the top is lightly brown. Cool completely on a wire rack. These take a few hours to completely cool, so make them a day ahead of when you plan to devour share them.
