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
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.
