Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Bars

Josh's brother and his family are coming into Minnesota this week with their circus and we are heading up to see them. We can't wait!! It is our once a year rendevous with them and we all have a wonderful time... I always have to bring some sort of treat with us and this year it is this delicious little recipe and my banana chocolate chip muffins. Can't wait to dig into these after a few drinks with the in-laws! :)
