Peanut Butter Fingers

  • Yield 16 servings

An oatmeal cake, swirled with peanut butter, and iced with peanut butter and chocolate frosting


This is a great dessert that is quick and easy to make. It's an "old" family recipe for over 40 years.


1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups old-fashioned oats
12 ounces chocolate chips
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 to 4 tablespoons milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs and peanut butter. Stir until smooth. Add remaining ingredients (excluding topping ingredients) and mix until evenly blended.
  3. Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Press mixture evenly into the pan.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven, cover immediately with chocolate chips and allow chips to melt, then spread evenly.
  6. Blend together powdered sugar, peanut butter and milk until smooth. Spread topping mixture evenly over the melted chocolate chips, making a swirl pattern.
  7. Cool, cut and serve.
