2 cups sugar
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks
4 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups uncooked quick cooking oats
2 teaspoons vanilla


2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
2 to 3 teaspoons milk


Line 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges; set aside.

Combine sugar, butter, whipping cream and chocolate in 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full boil. Continue cooking 1 minute.

Remove from heat. Add 1/2 cup peanut butter; stir until melted. Stir in oats and vanilla.

Spread batter into prepared pan, smoothing top. Cool completely. Lift bars from pan using foil ends.

Combine powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon peanut butter and enough milk for desired glazing consistency in small bowl. Drizzle bars with glaze. Cut bars into 1-inch squares. Place into foil cups, if desired.

Recipe Tip

To make cookies instead of bars, drop rounded teaspoons of dough onto wax paper-lined baking sheets. Cool completely. Drizzle glaze over top.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I just finished glazing these jewels. And oh my goodness !!! So creamy and melts in your mouth. I was shy 1/4 cup of sugar, so I added 1/4 c karo light corn syrup. Took a little while to come to a boil. So be patient. I used girardelli 100% cacao. And I always add a little espresso powder to my chocolate recipes. Truly the best no bake cookies, I dropped mine on waxed paper, I've made.
