World's Best Peanut Butter Fingers.

Another violation of the 5 things rule, but it's junk food so it's TOTALLY worth it. I'm participating in the Virtual Cookie exchange, so feel free to browse for other great recipes!

Word of warning, this is my grandma's recipe, so without scaling it down it makes 2 full pans--better get them out of the house quick!

Peanut Butter Fingers

2 squares butter
1/2 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. peanut butter
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 c. flour
1 1/2 c. oatmeal

Mix all ingredients and press into two 9 x 13 pans. Bake at 350 for 13 minutes. Cool 5-12 minutes and frost with peanut butter and chocolate frosting. Best with the fudge frosting below!

Chocolate Fudge Frosting

1/3 c. evap. milk
1 c. sugar
5 large marshmallows
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Cook milk, sugar, and marshmallows until melted on medium heat. Remove from heat, add remaining ingredients. When chocolate chips melt pout immediately (great on cake as well!)

You can add mint to part if you want to make double layered mint/chocolate frosting (i.e. brownies).
