  • Add egg, the 1/3 cup peanut butter, the baking soda, vanilla, and salt. Beat until thoroughly combined. Stir in flour and oats. Spread into a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

  • Bake in a 350° oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are light brown.

  • Sprinkle with chocolate pieces; let stand for 5 minutes to soften.

  • Meanwhile, for icing, stir together powdered sugar, the 3 tablespoons peanut butter and enough of the milk, a tablespoon at a time, to reach drizzling consistency.

  • Spread softened chocolate evenly over bars. Drizzle with icing. Cool in the pan on a wire rack before cutting into bars.
