Peanut Butter Bars

Super easy.  Wonderfully delicious.  Seriously addicting!  This recipe is from my niece, Jamee McMurdie.

Cream together:
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter

Add:
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt (I think 1/2 tsp. would be enough, maybe even 1/4 tsp.)
2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal

Mix well.  Spread on big cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees until light brown for 10-12 minutes.  Let cool completely.  Spread with Chocolate Frosting.

Chocolate Frosting:
2/3 cup butter
1/3 cup cocoa
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3-5 T. milk

Mix until smooth.  Frost cooled peanut butter bars.
