My Mom your Mom everyones Mom would whip up some of these bad boys! Hey they Oatmeal in them so they are kind of healthy, right? lol Ok so I decided to take it to the next level made them into bars and topped with some Reese Peanut Butter Cups!! Here’s the recipe!

2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

16 mini Reese Peanut Butter Cups

Line  an 8″ square pan with parchment paper and set aside. Measure the peanut butter & oats and set aside so they’re ready when you need them. Have your vanilla bottle handy along with a teaspoon. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil and once it reaches a full rolling boil, cook for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter until melted, then stir in the vanilla and lastly the oats. Immediately pour mixture into prepared pan and place Reese cups on top. Push down slightly. Put on a cooling rack to set until completely cool.
