Melt 2/3 C butter (I always use real butter) and add to 1 C Jif peanut butter. Mix well with your mixer.
Add 3 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla, and 2 C brown sugar and mix well.
Add 1 C flour and 1/2 tsp. salt and mix well.
Spread into a greased 9x13 pan and bake approx. 25 mins. at 350 degrees. (My oven is old and bakes unevenly. I have to cook mine about 30-35 minutes.) When finished baking, take out of oven and cool.
While the bars are cooling, mix 2/3 C powdered sugar with 2 tsp. hot water. (You may need to add extra water to get the right consistency.) Set aside. Then melt 1/4 C chocolate chips in another bowl along with 1 Tbsp. Crisco. I melt mine in the microwave at 70% power one minute at a time, stirring after each minute. I then drizzle each icing over the cooled bars. You can put each icing into a sandwich bag and cut a small hole in the corner and pipe the icing onto the bars.
Or you can do what I do: drizzle each icing on with a spoon and call it abstract art!
