Peanut Butter Delight Bars

Preacher Cookie

This Peanut Butter Delight Bars Recipe is simple decadence. 
Blending of rich cocoa flavor with a crunchy peanut filling and the final topping from the honey-bear makes this dessert an absolute treat. It is an adaptation from what most southern folk call the Preacher Cookie. Although the recipe contains a bit of sugar it is also fairly healthy if you take in the quantity of peanut butter and oatmeal.
Most importantly, my kids say,
"It's Good!"

Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook time: 5 minutes Cooking Time: 5 minutes
