    1      cup           butter or margarine -- softened
      1/4  cup           peanut butter + 2 T. -- divided
    2                    eggs
    2      cups          flour
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
      1/4  teaspoon      salt -- optional
    2      cups          oats, quick or old-fashioned -- uncooked
    1      can           sweetened condensed milk
    1      package       semisweet chocolate chips
      2/3  cup           peanuts -- chopped
 
 Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan.  Combine brown sugar, butter and 1/4
 cup peanut butter in large bowl, mixing until light and fluffy.  Beat in
 eggs.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt, if using, in second bowl. 
 Stir into peanut butter mixture until blended.  Stir in oats; mix well. 
 Reserve 1 cup of oat mixture.  Spread remaining oat mixture evenly in

 stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted.  Remove from heat; stir
 in peanuts.  Spread mixture evenly over oat mixture in pan.  Drop
