Glazed Peanut Butter Bars

Two of my favorite things in life are chocolate & peanut butter. I dont know if there are many things that go together as well as those two ingredients (except me & my hubs ;)

This is a great after school snack for kids and for some of us adults we remember getting something like it at school :)

Taste of home
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons water
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

1-1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter


In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Beat in the eggs, water and vanilla. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

Spread into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 325° for 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned.

For glaze, in a microwave, melt chips and peanut butter; stir until smooth. Pour over warm bars; spread evenly. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.

Crockpot bbq chicken

You probably wont believe this but I am not a huge bbq lover!! I dont know why but I have to actually want bbq or I cant eat it. I know I know I need help lol. I have certain brands that I like so when I seen this recipe with sweet baby rays I jumped on it!!!

4-6 pieces boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 bottle BBQ sauce (sweet baby ray's all the way!)
1/4 c vinegar
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 - 1 tsp. garlic powder

Mix BBQ sauce with all ingredients listed under it. Place chicken in crockpot. Pour sauce over it and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours. Take your lid off the last half hour so the bbq will thicken.
