Ooey Gooey Monster Bars-Perfect for Holiday Cookie Exchanges

Reposting this from back in March so you can enjoy these during the holidays!

Treat a friend to one (or ten!) of these monster bars.

My friend J treated me (isn't that just as sweet as it gets? A friend who knows your love for chocolate and makes you a special treat?!) and Wilder/I have made them twice since our play date last week. I have shared from both pans, but not as much as I should've.

They are just so hard to stay out of:
Recipe (so easy):
Monster Bars by K. Brown
1/2 c. margarine, softened
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. peanut butter
4 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 c. M&Ms
1 c. chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together and spread in an 11 x 15 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes, being careful not to overbrown. Cut in 1-1 1/2 inch squares; they are thick, gooey bars.
I cleaned a little today. I am impressed with myself as it is a rare occurrence that I clean before 9pm, or, well, ever. Wilder was busy playing with the Swiffer sweeper and Story was having her Cheerios affair, so I cleaned.

Had to capture the cleanliness on camera because it won't last.
Off to do stuff.

The best photo is the last one! How do you keep your house so clean?! Tell me you have a playroom?! My living room looks like a Toys R' Us threw up in it. *sigh*
