No Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars (simplygloria)

3/4 c unsalted butter
1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c milk
1 t vanilla
1/2 c creamy (or crunchy) peanut butter
3 3/4 c old fashioned oats/oatmeal
1 1/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Melt butter in a large sauce pan on medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add the sugar, milk, vanilla and peanut butter. Whisk until combined. Turn the heat up to medium-high heat and bring the mix to a boil for 4 min, while continuing to whisk. Take the sauce pan off the heat and add the oats. Stir until all combined. Spread the mix evenly in a lined 9 x 9″ baking dish. (No need to use non stick spray.) Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the oats mix. The heat will start to heat up the chocolate chips to melt them. Within about 5 min the chocolate will be ready to spread across with the back of a spoon. Allow to completely cool before cutting into squares. Note: You may scoop the oatmeal and peanut butter mix onto a flat surface for individual no bake cookies.
