Brownies with Peanut Butter Chips
1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, melted
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 2/3 cups (10 ounce package) peanut butter chips, divided
2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1/4 cup confectioners (powdered) sugar
Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 13" x 9" baking pan using Pan Release.
In a large bowl, stir together butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat with spoon or whisk until well blended. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture, stirring until well blended. Reserve 1/2 cup peanut butter chips for glaze. Stir remaining chips into batter. Spread batter in prepared pan.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted halfway between the edge and center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
