Because this is a stovetop recipe, there is no need to turn on the oven and heat the entire house up.  So the first step is to mix on the oatmeal base crust.

Once cooked over the burner, press the crust base flat into your pan.

While the chocolate peanut butter layer can be melted in the microwave, I highly suggest utilizing a double boiler instead.  A double boiler helps to ensure a nice, even melt without burning any of the ingredients.

Spread the creamy chocolate layer evenly over the crust.

Top the chocolate layer with the remaining crust crumble that had been reserved earlier.  Then refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or till bars have set.
