Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Last night I invited a good friend over for a last minute dinner.  I wanted something sweet to serve for dessert, but didn’t want to go to the supermarket so I set forth looking for the perfect recipe that used things I had on hand.  Perfection was found in these peanut butter chocolate chip bars.  Not only were these super simple to make, they were heavenly!!  They tasted JUST like a peanut butter cup.  So delicious!  The picture I took wasn’t the greatest (they’re not very photogenic and I think mine were actually undercooked – but they were still great!) but don’t be fooled…you will be thanked by all if you make this soon!
