Peanut Butter Chocolate Oat Bars

This is not a well documented, step by step recipe. When I first dug this recipe up online, I didn't think that I would be posting it here, and, as a result, I only took a few pictures. The pictures that are on here are the only ones I took. I'm sorry, I just had no idea that these bars would be this good! The base is made of oats rolled in an caramel like mixture. Next, there is a layer of melted chocolate and peanut butter. Raise your hand if you are a chocolate peanut butter lover! My hand is totally raised! The nice things about these bars is that the top is the same as the bottom, so there really isn't that much prep involved, making these quick as well as delicious.
Here is the final product. It's delicious, I'm warning you.
This is the first two layers. I am so bad, that I didn't even get a pic of the finished product! Shame on myself! I will do better next time. :)
This picture doesn't do justice. Chocolate and peanut butter really were a match made in heaven!

I liked this picture. I also liked liking off the spoons after this picture.

Makes a 9 by 9 inch pan
Based On A Recipe By Traci On Allrecipes

1 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
3 Cups Oats
1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter

Heat the butter and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Stir in vanilla. Add oats to the mixture and stir until the oats are covered. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a double boiler, and add peanut butter. To assemble, press half of the oat mixture into a greased 9 by 9 baking dish. Pour the chocolate on top and spread with the back of a spoon until the oat layer is thoroughly covered. Then, crumble the remaining oat mixture on top. Chill for 2-3 hours. Enjoy!
