In a mixing bowl, combine butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add the granulated and brown sugars, mixing well. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well blended. Add vanilla. Slowly incorporate the flour, and baking powder. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 8″ square pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in to the center comes out clean. Let cook completely and cut into bars.
