Oatmeal Cookie Base & Topping:
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups old fashioned oats
2½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2  tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350°. In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter and brown sugar.  Mix in eggs and vanilla.  Combine oats, flour, baking soda, and salt; mix into creamed mixture. Press two-thirds of the dough into a sprayed 9″x13″baking pan.

Creamy Orange Peanut Butter Center:
2 Tbl butter
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Reese’s Peanut Butter chips
1 cup Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers
1 tsp vanilla
7 drops each red & yellow food color
Halloween sprinkles

In a saucepan, combine butter, sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter chips, and white wafers.  Cook and stir over low heat just until chips and wafers are melted. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and food color. Spread over crust. Using your hands, sprinkle remaining oatmeal dough evenly over creamy mixture, sprinkle with Halloween sprinkles, and pat down gently.  Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown (you may want to lay a piece of foil over for the last 10-15 minutes so it doesn’t get too brown). Cool. Cut into squares.
