Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

I have so many things to post since I got behind over the last couple of weeks! I guess the end of October just caught me by surprise. Anyway, I had these bars a few weeks ago at a social gathering, and have been craving them ever since. I looked all over for a good recipe, and finally settled on the Nestle's Peanut Butter Buddy Bars. And they turned out great.

1 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
6 tbsp butter or margarine, softened
1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
¼ tsp salt
1 ¾ cups (11.5 oz) milk chocolate morsels, divided

Preheat oven to 350. Beat peanut butter and butter in large mixer bowl until smooth. Beat in sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat in flour and salt. Stir in 3-4 cup morsels. Spread into ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Sprinkle with remaining morsels. Let stand for 5 minutes or until morsels are shiny; spread evenly. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. Makes 3 dozen bars
