Reese's Pieces Sweet and Salty Bars

Welcome to Traveler in the Kitchen!   Let's be friends on Facebook

Pretzels are multiplying in the pantry.  Similar to what dry cleaning hangers do in your closet (the fancy hangers with clips never multiply...).      I've found not one, but three partial bags of pretzels and I'm not sure why.    They are not my choice of snack.   And when they are in another snack (say, my sister's addictive Chex mix) they are the last ones eaten...kind of like black licorice jelly beans.    I'm sure it's hard on their spindly, salty, self-esteem.    If you want to show some pretzels love, bake them.   Preferably with peanut butter and Reese's Pieces.      

What You Need
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup peanut butter (as always, I prefer the Kroger store brand crunchy honey and roasted peanut)
1 egg
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup pretzel sticks, broken
1 cup Reese's Pieces

What You Do
Preheat the oven to 350.   Line a 13x9 pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, beat both sugars, butter, peanut butter and the egg on medium.   Gently beat in the flour, oats, baking soda and salt.   Stir in the pretzel sticks and Reese's Pieces.

Bake 17-22 minutes until golden brown.     Cool completely.    Use the foil to remove the bars from the pan and cut into squares (or rectangles, or triangles, your choice).

What's been multiplying in your pantry recently?   Can you  make something delicious with it and share?
