Festive SquaresRecipe By: Amy Rosen
A winning combination of peanut butter, oats and chocolate, these simple squares take just minutes to prepare — and they never stay around for much longer than that!
- 3 cups sugar
- ¾ cup unsalted butter
- 5 tbsp cocoa
- ¾ cup 2% milk
- ¾ cup peanut butter
- 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 4 ½ cups rolled oats
Directions Yield: Makes 36
- Mix sugar, butter, cocoa and milk together in a microwaveable bowl, then microwave on high for 3 minutes. Take out and stir until lumps are mostly gone, then microwave for 3 minutes more.
- Add peanut butter and vanilla to the bowl, mixing until peanut butter has melted. Then add oats, one cup at a time, and mix until well combined.
- Pour mixture into a 9″ x 13″ baking dish and let set in fridge at least 8 hours or overnight. Cut into squares and serve.
