Peanut Butter Swirl Bars

There is just something awesome about the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.  These bars were super simple to make and they are oh so delicious!!

Peanut Butter Swirl Bars
from my friend Tawnia
1/2  cup chunky peanut butter
1/3 cup margarine
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream together peanut butter and margarine with sugars. Add eggs. Add vanilla, soda and salt. Blend well. Mix in the flour. Spread mixture evenly into a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle freely with chocolate chips. 
 Place in 350 degree oven (middle rack) for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and swirl melted chocolate throughout cookie batter.
 Bake for about 25 more minutes until center is cooked through. If bars start to pull away from the edge of the pan, the cookie is probably completed baking. 
Let cool, if you can wait that long, and cut into bars.
OH YUM!! They did not last long around my house!!
