Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
1 Cup Butter
1 Cup Peanut Butter (Chunky or creamy, I used a mixture of both)
2 Cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Semi-Sweet or Milk Chocolate Chips (I used milk but it was SUPER sweet!)
4 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
Melt the butter and 1 cup peanut butter. Add graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar. Mix well until blended. Press into ungreased 9X13 inch pan. Melt the chocolate chips with 4 tbsp peanut butter (on stove top or in the microwave) and spread on top of graham cracker mixture.
Refrigerate at least one hour. I refrigerated them for two days and they were perfect.

1 Cup Flour
1 1/2 Cup Oats (quick or regular)
3/4 Cup + 3 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
5 Tbsp. Regular Sugar
1 1/3 Cup Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Carmel Topping
3/4 Tsp. Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 cup + 1 Tbsp Butter, melted
4 Tbsp. Flour
Mix flour, oats, sugar, soda, salt and butter. Press half the mixture into a 9X13 inch pan lined with parchment paper and set the other half aside.
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Don't over bake!
Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Blend carmel with the 3 tbsp. flour.
Pour/spread over chocolate chips. Cover with the remaining flour/oat mixture. This part was a little tricky because I wanted it to look perfect so I took balls of the mixture, flattened them, and placed them over the carmel.
It's ok to have spaces between as you can see in the picture because it gives room for the caramel chocolate to ooze out! Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until light brown. Allow to cool and set before slicing.
