Delicious recipe from the back of the Land O' Lakes Margarine Box (not good for the diet):

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons sugar
35 milk chocolate candy Kisses

* Heat oven to 350. Line 13 x 9-inch pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over pan edges. Set aside.
*Combine brown sugar, margarine and peanut butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Beat until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
*Pat dough into prepared pan. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately press evenly spaced chocolate candies into warm bars. Cool completely. Remove bars from pan using edges of foil; cut into bars, cutting between candies. Makes 35 bars.

Yum! Looks good! our pastor LOVES peanut butter and chocolate mixed....his daughter ( whom I'm friends with) says that he'll put chocolate chips in the peanut butter jar, and eat it out of that! Thanks for the recipe....I want to try it.
