I found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine way back in 2001. This recipe is easy to make and definitely yummy. The original recipe calls for corn syrup instead of honey - but I like to use honey instead. If you like peanuts and chocolate - then you should give this recipe a try.
Here's the recipe:
Chocolate Oat Scotchies
2/3 cup butter or margarine 1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup plus 2/3 cup chunky peanut butter, divided
1 tsp. vanilla 4 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup chocolate chips 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup salted peanuts
In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter; stir in brown sugar and honey until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in 1/4 cup peanut butter and vanilla until blended. Add the oats; mix well. Press into a greased 13x9 inch x 2 inch baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the chips and remaining peanut butter; stir in peanuts. Spread over crust. Refrigerate until cool; cut into bars.
*reduced-fat or generic brand peanut butter are not recommended for this recipe.
