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.
