Peanut Butter Fingers

So you remember the peanut butter fingers we used to get at school that were the best!? I used to love them. Well here is a recipe that tastes very similar. It's a mixture of Hodgkinson's recipe and I LOVE THEM!

Mix in a large bowl:
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp soda
3/4 tsp salt

Add and mix well:
1 Tbs vanilla
1 c. melted butter
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. peanut butter

Add and mix well:
3 c. flour
1 1/2 c. rolled oats

Bake in a sprayed 12 x 15" pan at 350 for about 15 min. (until puffed and just barely getting golden brown)

While hot, spread with:
1 - 1 1/2 c. peanut butter (I probably used about 1 1/4 c)
Cool in the fridge so the PB hardens.

Frost when cool:
4 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. cocoa power
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 c butter, softened
1/3 c boiling water
1 tsp vanilla extract

Now, this obviously makes a ton. Normally I half it and bake it in a 9x13" pan. They are good cool, but better warm. And they are SO GOOD if you heat them up for 10 seconds in the microwave!
