    This is one of my husbands favorite recipes to whip up and give to new neighbors, take to a pot luck, or hoard at home with a bowl of ice cream.

      The edges were good.

      Um, yum! These are so good, and I love that they are made with things I usually have on hand. I used butter because I never have margarine on hand, and for the chocolate chip layer, I used dark chocolate and some butterscotch chips that I had on hand. I probably used a little more than one cup of the combined chips. I was afraid when I spread the peanut butter layer in the pan that it was too thin, but it baked up very nicely. I used store-brand peanut butter and it turned out just fine. Make a pan of these, pour yourself a glass of ice cold milk, and enjoy. You won't regret it!

      These do taste good, but I had problems with the posted cooking time. The bars simply weren't done after 18 minutes in the oven. When I checked the bars they were still soupy wet. After 20 more minutes the center was set and the edges almost too crisp to eat. I did use a glass pan slightly smaller than 9X13 so they may have been a little thicker. I will try again another time because they do taste good & I almost always have the ingredients on hand.
