I know the name for these is really long. But any other name just didn’t sound right. I just couldn’t leave the word chocolate, peanut butter, pretzel or oatmeal cookie out of the title, cause each one is equally vital to the yummyness of these bars. I contemplated calling them Dream Bars, but come on who could resist a treat with the words Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Pretzels, Oatmeal and Cookie in the title? Obviously, NOT Me. For these bars I started with my all time favorite oatmeal cookie bar recipe. Then I threw in a handful of chopped pretzels, added a layer of peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk and topped it all off with a layer of chocolate. YUM!
Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Pretzel
Oatmeal Cookie Bars
3/4 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1 Cup Oatmeal
1 3/4 Cups Flour
1 1/2 Cups Pretzels, Coarsely Chopped
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
7oz Sweetened Condensed Milk(half of a can)
2 Cups Chocolate ChipsCream the butter and sugars together. Add the egg and vanilla, mix well. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in the chopped pretzels. Spread the dough in a greased 9×13 pan. In a small microwave safe bowl add the peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk. Microwave in 30 second bursts until melted and stir to combine. Spread evenly over the dough and swirl into the top a little bit with a butter knife. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 18-20 minutes. Immediately after removing evenly sprinkle the chocolate chips on top, let sit for 5 minutes to melt. Spread the chocolate evenly over the bars. Cool and Enjoy!
