No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

I have well over 400 sweet treats on my Pinterest board.
Too many, I know. Because I really want to make every one of these things!
This year, after searching for the perfect treats to send my sister and her family for Christmas, I found these Chocolate Oat Bars at All Recipes.comĀ 
Heres what you need:
1 C. butter
1/2 C. packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 C. Quick cook oats
1 C. chocolate chips
1/2 C. peanut butter
  1. Grease a 99 inch square pan.
  2. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and vanilla. Mix in the oats. Cook over low heat 2 to 3 minutes, or until ingredients are well blended. Press half of mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Reserve the other half for topping.
  3. Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in a small heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over the crust in the pan, and spread evenly with a knife or the back of a spoon.
  4. Crumble the remaining oat mixture over the chocolate layer, pressing in gently. Cover, and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or overnight. Bring to room temperature before cutting into bars.

Enjoy! Try no to eat the entire pan!
