Peanut Buddies

When I was little, my mom made "Peanut Buddies" and I used the recipe many times when my kids were young. It involves oats and is delicious, but for this particular recipe I tried a new version, using a recipe from Toll House, but tweaking it a bit. The way these are disappearing, I'd say it was a success. I've got to admit that peanut butter and chocolate are on the top of my list of happy foods.

Peanut Buddies
1 cup natural chunky peanut butter (such as Adam's brand)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (divided)

Preheat oven to 350ºF

Beat peanut butter and butter in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add flour, salt and 3/4 cup chocolate chips.

Spread in an ungreased 13 x 9" baking pan and bake for 25 - 30 minutes until lightly browned around the edges. Sprinkle with 1 cup chocolate chips, allow to melt, then spread evenly over the surface. Cool, cut in small squares, and serve.
