  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, 1/2 cup of butter and the egg yolks. Mix together by hand until everything is well blended, and the mixture is crumbly. Press evenly into a 9x13 inch pan.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until light gold.
  4. As soon as the crust comes out of the oven, sprinkle the 2/3 cup of chocolate chips onto it. Return to the oven for 1 to 2 minutes. Take out of the oven and spread the melted chocolate chips over the crust. Set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix together the confectioners' sugar, peanut butter,1/4 cup of margarine, and vanilla. Then stir in the milk. Crumble the peanut butter mixture over the chocolate layer. Press down lightly. In a medium saucepan, combine the 1/3 cup chocolate chips and the shortening. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until melted. Drizzle over the peanut butter layer and refrigerate until set, about 3 to 4 hours. Cut into 2x 1 1/2 inch bars

Very yummy! I added more powdered sugar to the topping to make it more crumbly- going according to the recipe it just becomes thicker peanut butter. Besides that very easy and good!

These bars are awesome. I doubled the recipe and used a jelly roll pan and it worked well. Very yummy!

It's GREAT! Very easy and quick. My nephews love making it with me and my boyfriend loves to eat them!

Extremely tasty but hard as rocks to cut. I also had to add 1/4 cup more powdered sugar to get the peanut butter mixture less mud-like.
