Hilton Family Favorite Desserts

Dessert! Oh how I love my desserts. My sisters and I have often puzzled over the fact that our husbands didn’t grow up having dessert after lunch and dinner each day.  I think we can all agree that we have our Mom to thank for our sweet tooths! It’s no wonder, since the recipes we grew up with were so scrumptious! For the next few weeks, I’m going to post some of our favorite Hilton (and Ipsen) family dessert recipes. They’re too yummy to keep to ourselves!

When I asked my sisters what some of their favorites were, all of their responses included this one. An absolute favorite that some of you may already be familiar with! We grew up bringing this dessert to swim day with the Thaxtons, family reunions, and other functions. Not to mention the regular, old, school day afternoon treat! This is a little dessert we like to call…

No Name Treats

½ c sugar
1 c flour
½ c cold butter

4 c oatmeal
1 c brown sugar
½ tsp salt
2/3 c melted butter
½ c Karo syrup
1 Tbsp vanilla

1 c Chocolate Chips
½ c Peanut Butter

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together sugar and flour. Cut butter into mixture until crumbly. Pat in the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan, and bake for 20 minutes. While crust is baking, mix together oatmeal, brown sugar, and salt, then add melted butter, Karo syrup, and vanilla. Mix well. Lower oven temp to 325. Spread mixture over crust, and press so it is compacted. Bake for 10 minutes. Melt chocolate chips in microwave, then add peanut butter and stir until combined. Carefully spread over hot mixture, and let cool before cutting and serving.

*Here’s a comment from someone who’s mastered this recipe. Thanks Becca! For some reason when using butter, the bottom layer separates from the rest, so I always use margarine and it holds together great.

  1. I want one of these right now! Just so you know……I’ve experimented with these, using margarine OR butter in the bottom layer. For some reason when using butter, the bottom layer separates from the rest, so I always use margarine and it holds together great.
