Fat Witch Peanut Butter Bars

Headnotes from the book:
Forget the jelly and jam. These bars are all about pure peanut butter flavor. They're great when made with the chunky all natural variety, choose a brand without any added sugar. The chocolate chips are optional, but if you're a fan of peanut butter cups, you may want to add them.
