Peanut Butter Cake Bars

Peanut butter + chocolate is one of the best combinations, amiright? I'm not picky when it comes to the duo, I'll take it in any form: peanut butter cups, milkshakes, m&m's, you name it. I particularly like these bars. Although they're called cake bars, the texture is really more like that of a blondie. They're a cinch to throw together, and it's hard to eat just one!

Peanut Butter Cake Bars
2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 package (11.5 oz) milk chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt ;gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.

Spread into greased 9x13-inch baking pan. Bake 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 2 dozen.
