Chocolate Oatmeal Bars

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups quick oatmeal
1 package (11-1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
2/3 cup peanut butter
4 (1.4 ounces each) chocolate covered toffee bars, crushed

Instructions

In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar. Add corn syrup and vanilla; beat well. Stir in oats. Press into a greased 13x9-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter. Stir until well blended. Spread over cooled bars. Sprinkle with crushed candy bars. Refrigerate until set. Cut into bars. This works with either creamy or chunky peanut butter and chopped nuts can be substituted for the crushed candy.
