Updated Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Sunday was a very important day in my life.

No.....I'm not pregnant. You all are as bad as my kids. Last week I told them I had something to say and the older three asked if I was having another baby.
You see, Sunday was the day I perfected my Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar recipe. I thought I already had them down pat, until my hubby announces that my friend makes them better than I do. WhAt?!?**?!?.....how could that possibly be true???

I got the recipe from HER.

I smelled a saboteur.

After some deep interrogation techniques, my friend admitted to making her bars with a few alterations. So in an effort to continue the high quality and integrity of my blog, I share with you the true version of this home run recipe that was declared "absolutely perfect" by my husband.

The two alterations are very minor but result in a quite a different bar. This updated version is much more dense and moist than my first recipe. I would almost describe it as a brownie like texture. These simple changes make this an absolute must have recipe!!!

Change #1: Substitute the butter flavored Crisco for cheap old margarine.
Change #2: Don't use whole oats. Use quick oats. If you only have whole oats, pulse them 6-7 times for one second in your food processor. Don't over process or you will end up with too fine of oats and very dry cookies.....that is spoken by experience :)

Chocolate and peanut butter are always the perfect pair in my book. Your bars look like a delicious way to enjoy them. I have a linky party on my blog every week called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link this up.
