“I was going to make my favorite chewy chocolate chip bars whose recipe I found here on Zaar. But we ran out of brown sugar just as I took out the crust from the oven. I had a full bag of chocolate chips, and some peanut butter, so I combine them and made these! By the way, they look and taste fabulous with a little powdered sugar sprinkled over top of them!”
