Note: These are not Reese's bars, but still delicious!
1 cup crunch peanut butter
2/3 cups soft butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
Combine peanut butter, vanilla and margarine in large bowl; beat with electric beater until well-blended. Beat in sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs, one at a time.
Stir in flour and salt just until well-blended; spread batter in greased 13 x 9 x 2" pan.
Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) for 35 minutes or until center springs back when touched. Remove to wire rack, cool slightly.
Combine 3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar and 2 tsp water to smooth; drizzle over top, swirl with back of spoon. Melt 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 tsp shortening in double boiler; drizzle over white glaze. Cool. Cut into 36 bars. Remove from pan with spatula.
Note: I seldom do step 4 as they are quite rich without the frosting.
