Yield: 16 Servings
|½ cup||Peanut butter|
|½ cup||Granulated sugar|
|½ cup||Packed brown sugar|
|½ teaspoon||Baking powder|
|2 packs||(6-oz) semi-sweet chocolate morsels|
|½ cup||Chopped; salted peanuts|
Heat oven to 375. Grease a 13x9x2-inch pan. Mix shortening, peanut butter, sugars & egg thoroughly. Stir in water, flour, soda, baking powder, salt & 1 package chocolate morsels. Spread in pan. Bake about 20 minutes. Remove from oven & immediately sprinkle remaining package of chocolate morsels evenly over baked layer. Place baking sheet over pan so contained heat will soften morsels. Spread softened chocolate evenly. Sprinkle with peanuts & cut into bars. Makes about 32 cookies.
