Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Bars

This is a recipe that one of the girls in our college group and I made up on Saturday. It turned out really yummy:o)

1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. butter
2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
3 c. oatmeal
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 c. half-n-half
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 c. peanuts, roughly chopped
  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together peanut butter, butter, sugar, and eggs. Add oatmeal and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together salt, soda, and flour. Add to creamed mixture 1 cup at a time. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Press onto a large cookie sheet or pizza pan until 1/2" thick. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
  4. In a double boiler, heat half-n-half until warm. Add chocolate chips, stir continually till smooth. Remove from heat; add butter and vanilla, stir till smooth.
  5. Place chocolate sauce in a quart-sized ziptop bag, close tightly and cut of one corner (to create a makeshift piping bag). Drizzle over the cookie and then sprinkle the chopped nuts on top. Let cool 5-10 minutes before cutting.
