Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, whatever you have
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar light or dark, again whatever you have
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 2- 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions
  • Place all ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave until butter and peanut butter are melted, one to two minutes (time will vary by microwave).
  • Remove from microwave and use a large spoon to stir all of the ingredients together (except chocolate chips) until they form a ball of dough that leaves the side of the bowl. Pat into a 9×13 pan.
  • Pour chocolate chips into another microwave safe bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until completely melted. Spoon over top of peanut butter mixture and spread evenly.
  • Allow to cool completely at room temperature until chocolate hardens again or place in the refrigerator for faster hardening. Cut into squares and serve to some awfully happy people!
