peanut butter cookie bars

They're pretty much awesomeness in a bite.

Peanut Butter Cookie Bars

1 1/2 cups butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup peanut butter ( I used creamy, you could use crunchy if you prefer)
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
6 cups oatmeal

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugars together in a large bowl. Add eggs and peanut butter. Mix well. Add salt, baking soda, and flour and mix well. Stir in vanilla and oatmeal. Spread dough in a greased 9x13 pan. bake 15 minutes. Do not over bake. Remove from oven and spread additional peanut butter over bars. (I think this over peanut buttered it, haha) When cool, melt 1/3 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips with 1 tbsp of peanut butter and melt in the microwave. Let it cool for a minute, spoon into a ziploc bag and snip a little bit off of a corner. Drizzle over the top and let it cool and harden slightly. Cut the bars up and EAT!
