1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/4 cup light Karo syrup
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats, uncooked
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
In 8-inch square glass dish, melt butter in microwave. Remove; mix in corn syrup and brown sugar. Stir in oats. Microwave on full power until bubbly, about 3 to 4 minutes. In separate bowl, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter about 1 minute in microwave. Stir and pour over hot mixture. Refrigerate until firm; cut into bars.
Note: These can be made several days ahead of time since they keep well in the refrigerator.
Makes 36 bars.
