Peanut Butter Bars...a little bit of heaven!

These bars are the ultimate comfort food! Whomever came up with the brilliant idea of combining peanut butter and chocolate is a true genius! I will be forever indebted to them. When I make these, I double the recipe and use a 16x10" pan. I am not sure where I got this size of pan but I love it!! I double the icing recipe as well. What more could you ask for????
