ceramic fixtures in drywall

I recently had my bathroom remodelled and was planning on replacing the ceramic towel bar fixtures that were imbedded in the drywall. I carefully chiselled them out with no problems, however, since they were recessed, I now have two plaster filled holes. Should I cut that away and patch them using new drywall, or would I be able to just fill in these holes with joint compound or plaster? Also, since most "modern" towel racks come in 18" or 24" lengths, how would I go about anchoring one to a wall when the studs are 16" on center? I have a teenage daughter who "insists" on using every available towel in the house when she takes a shower and I need to make sure that the towel rack is secure and can handle the weight. Thank you =)
