These chocolate peanut butter bars are such an easy, fantastic treat! They get slightly crisp on the outside while they stay a little gooey on the inside.

Chunky Peanut Butter
Dark Brown Sugar
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Nonstick Cooking Spray
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and spray an 8x8-inch dish with Nonstick Cooking Spray (as needed).
Combine the Salted Butter (1/2 Tbsp) and Chunky Peanut Butter (1/2 cup) in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Heat in a microwave oven for 30 seconds, then stir together. Microwave another 30 seconds and stir some more, until completely melted.
Stir in the Dark Brown Sugar (1 1/2 cups), Eggs (2), and Vanilla Extract (1 Tbsp). Slowly add in the All-Purpose Flour (2 cups), Baking Powder (1 tsp), and Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp). Fold in the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (1 cup).
Spread the batter into an even layer in the prepared baking dish and bake it for 40-45 minutes. The top should be dry and starting to crisp up around the edges, while the center will still be slightly gooey.
Let them cool completely, then cut into 16 squares by making 3 equal cuts both vertically and horizontally. Serve them immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Yields 16 bars.
