Peanut Butter Bars

So lets say you just moved to a new state, new town, new neighborhood and know no one [like me]. Would you like to know how to fix that? Whip up a batch of these babies and take em to the neighbors. One bite= instant friends. I promise.
Or if friends aren't your thing and you just want to apologize for the many hours a day your kids spend riding there bikes up and down the sidewalk screaming at each other...these should fix that prob too. [I may or may not know this by experience]
The BEST peanut butter bars
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2 2/3 cup quick oats
2 2/3 cup flour
Mix all ingredients together and bake in a sheet cake pan at 350 for 20 minutes. Let cool completely and frost with peanut butter frosting. Keep stored in the fridge.

For the frosting-whip all together;
1 8oz package of softened cream cheese
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 lb. powdered sugar

You can spread chocolate chips on the bars while they are hot, sprinkle shaved chocolate curls on the frosting or my personal fatty favorite...chopped snickers bars on top.

Also this recipe is easily halved and fits perfectly into a 9x13 pan.

Those look awesome, Jaesi!

I am also in the middle of a move to a new state, new town, new neighborhood where I'll know no one so these are going on my how-to-make-friends list. Oh, wait, I also have kiddos that ride their bikes up and down the sidewalk trying to run each other over. I might need to make a double batch of these.
