Passion Bars

I pulled this ultra-rich recipe from a few weeks ago. It is so good! It goes together pretty quickly, and seems to work best in a glass 9x13 pan. Cut it into very small squares - this stuff is rich!

Passion Bars

2 c. quick cooking oats
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 c. butter, softened
1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 c. peanut butter
1/3 c. miniature chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 pan and set aside. in a large bowl, stir together oats, flour, brown sugar, salt, and baking soda. Cut in butter to form a crumbly mixture. Reserve 1 1/2 c. of crumbs and pat the rest evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. In a medium bowl, stir together condensed milk and peanut butter (this is a little easier if you warm the peanut butter first). spread evenly over crumb layer. Sprinkle chocolate chips over peanut butter mixture, then crumble remaining crumbs over top. Gently press the top layer of crumbs into the peanut butter mixture just a bit. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

Serves 24.
