Recipe by WildLightning

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together peanut butter, margarine, brown and white sugar.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla.
  4. Sift or mix together flour, baking powder and salt and add to mixture.
  5. Spread in a greased 9x13 pan and sprinkle chocolate chips over top.
  6. Bake for 3 minutes.
  7. Remove pan and swirl melted chocolate chips through peanut butter mixture with a butter knife. We make it look like a huge serpentine snake going through the mixture, as opposed to circle swirls.
  8. Return pan to oven and bake 15 minutes more.
