Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

1 cup creamy peanut butter
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1-1/4 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. In large mixing bowl, beat peanut butter and butter until smooth, about 1 minute. Add sugar, eggs and vanilla, and beat until creamy. Blend in flour and salt. Stir in 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Spread into ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan. Bake about 22 minutes, or until edges begin to brown. Immediately sprinkle remaining morsels over cookie layer. Let stand 5 minutes until morsels become shiny and soft. Spread the rest of the chocolate chips evenly over top. Cool completely at room temperature so that the chocolate doesn't "bloom".

Note: Our photo shows some Christmas sprinkles on the top. You can add those too!
