Karen's Peanut Butter Bars

My daughter-in-law makes the the best Peanut Butter Bars. Its her mother's recipe and their family has been making them for years. They remind me of Reese's Candy Bar Cups....AHHHHHHHHH YUM!!! These aren't only perfect for the holidays, but anytime is the right time to mix these babies up and gobble them down!! They are rich in taste and melt right in your mouth! mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!

Karen's Peanut Butter Bars

1/4 c. margarine or butter

1 c. chocolate chips 
2 T. shortening.
