Peanut Butter Cake Bars

These were really yummy and easy! I substituted the milk chocolate chips with spring-colored M&Ms which made them colorful; the kids loved them!
2/3 cup butter/margarine, softened
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 pkg (11-1/2 oz) milk chocolate chips
*In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
*Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips/M&Ms.
*Spread into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake at 350* for 45-50 mins or until firm. Cool on wire rack. Cut into bars.
