Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup flour
1/2 jar (about a cup) peanut butter (I used chunky)
1/2 bag (about a cup) milk chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 F.
Mix the butter and sugar thoroughly. Stir in flour. Press and flatten with hand to cover the bottom of a parchment-lined oblong pan, 13x9-ish.
Bake 10 minutes, then spread with the topping (irregularly spooned globs of peanut butter and a sprinkling of chocolate chips).
Return to the oven and bake for 25 minutes more, or until golden brown. Cool slightly, then cut into bars. Makes about 20.
