“I got this recipe from my mom. This is a melt in your mouth, simple recipe for bars w/ oats, chocolate & peanut butter. They are rich but so worth it! I get a craving for these and make them every other month. It says to take them to room temperature & then cut them - I think that's so they don't break as you cut them (and therefore look prettier). I think they taste great cold too so I don't always wait for them to get to room temp! Enjoy!”
