Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips, divided
  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup chopped dried mixed fruit or dried fruit bits
  • ORANGE GLAZE(recipe follows)

Directions

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

2. Place 1 cup peanut butter chips in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 minute; stir.

Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add to cream cheese mixture, blending well. Stir in oats, remaining 1/2 cup peanut butter chips and dried fruit. Spread batter in prepared pan.

3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool; spread with ORANGE GLAZE. Cut into bars. Makes 24 to 36 bars.

ORANGE GLAZE: Combine 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 tablespooons orange juice and 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated orange peel (optional) in small mixing bowl; blend until smooth. (Add additional orange juice, a teaspoonful at a time, if glaze is too thick.)
