Hope everyone had a relaxing long holiday weekend. Mine didn’t last nearly long enough, but it’s always nice to have an extra day to be with my hubby and kiddos 🙂 I made these for the family pot luck/barbecue last night. Everyone loved them! And the nice thing is they are so easy. No flour, no baking powder, so you have so much less measuring. Which in tern makes less dishes {my least favorite chore!!}. So these bars got two thumbs up in my book. The only thing that was kind of a negative is the peanut butter dominates the toffee just a little bit. So you didn’t taste the Heath bar on top as much as I thought you should, but that’s only me being super picky 🙂 Really this was an awesome and easy recipe! Enjoy!!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 package (11-1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 4 Heath candy bars (1/4 ounces each), crushed
In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in corn syrup and vanilla. Stir in oats; press into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter stir until smooth. Spread over cooled bars. Sprinkle with the crushed candy bars. Chill until set. Cut into bars.
