Peanut Butter Bar Truffles

I was making peanut butter bars the other day and, as usual, decided to experiment with yet another recipe. You can't go wrong with peanut butter bars and you can't go wrong with truffles, right? I combined the two and couldn't be happier with the finished product! These are the definition of YUM! Let me say it again.......YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!3/4 c butter or margarine
3/4 c brown sugar
3/4 c white sugar
1/2 t vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 t salt
3/4 t soda
3/4 c chunky peanut butter
Mix above ingrediants then add:
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c oatmeal
Mix all ingredients till completely combined.

creamy peanut butter
chocolate bark
chopped peanuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough into 1-1 1/2" balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake. While cookies are baking, whip 1-2 cups creamy peanut butter then melt in microwave till drizzling consistency, stirring at 30 second intervals. While cookies are still hot, squish them one at a time in your hand and roll them back into a ball. Careful...these are hot...but they can't be rolled back into a ball once cooled. Using a spoon, dip each ball into the peanut butter. Place the dipped balls onto a cookie sheet covered in wax paper and then freeze about 30 minutes. Slowly melt chocolate bark. Don't melt too much chocolate at a time because it thickens quickly. Immerse frozen peanut butter covered balls into melted chocolate and place back on wax paper. While chocolate is still wet, sprinkle chopped peanuts on top.
