Evil evil evil.
I am so very sorry for these and the worst part is I don’t even know who to blame! These bars flashed by me on my Facebook feed and I made mental note to check them out. It wasn’t the greatest picture but the title is what captured my attention. After a fruitless search hours later – because we all know how awesome Facebook is at showing us stuff, right?- I finally gave up and googled the name as best I could remember.

What makes these SO AMAZING is the creamy peanut butter filling in the middle. You guys. OH EM GEE. Ok? I’m serious here. I will be playing with this concept for recipes to come, rest assured. This is only my first kick at the creamy peanut butter filling cat.

Just LOOK.

The other recipe called for Peanut Butter cups, but I only had Reese’s Pieces. I would think that the PB cups would rock your socks off even more! I wanted these now and wasn’t going to waste a moment running to the store. I wanted to see if these actually worked.

They worked. Too well. Darn it, they negated all my salad eating.

I also have tweaked the recipe, I could see that the ratios were a bit off and that there had been complaints about it falling apart. This one doesn’t fall apart, it just falls into your mouth.

  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups large flake oats
  • 1 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter I used chunky
  • one 300 millilitre can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Reese’s pieces OR minis are perfect
  • 1 cup chopped Reese’s PB cups


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper.tir together the melted butter, sugar, soda, oatmeal, flour & salt until it’s crumbly.Set aside approximately 1 1/4 cups. of the mixture.
  • Press the remainder of the mixture into the prepared pan, making sure you press firmly. Bake the crust for 10 minutes then remove from the oven.
  • Stir together the peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk.
  • Pour and spread the peanut butter filling over the baked crust, making sure to not pull up the crust while you do so.
  • Spreading in one direction only solves this problem. Combine the reserved crumbs and Reese’s Pieces together and spread on top of the condensed milk mixture.
  • Bake at 350 for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top. Return to oven to bake for another 5-10 minutes or until topping is light golden brown and the chips are melting.
  • Cool, slice and serve.
