Fudgy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies
1/3 cup margarine (or butter), softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C ). Grease a 9×9 inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, cream together peanut butter and margarine. Gradually blend in the brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla; mix until fluffy. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture until well blended. Fold in chocolate chips.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in preheated oven, or until the top springs back when touched. Cool, and cut into 16 squares.
I doubled the recipe for a 9 X 13 and it turned out great! Very yummy and wonderful. I'm going to probably make these for Russ to take to work on Monday as a belated Veteran's Day treat for his office.
