Peanut Butter Squares

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons water
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 packages (6 ounces each or 1-12 ounce) Semisweet chocolate bits
1/2 cup chopped peanuts (salted)

Heat oven to 375 degrees and grease oblong pan 13 x 9 x 2.

Mix shortening, peanut butter, sugars and egg. Stir in water, flour, soda, baking powder and salt. Add 1 package chocolate chips. Spread in pan. Bake about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle remaining chocolate morsels evenly over baked layer. Place cookie sheet over pan so contained heat will soften morsels. Spread softened chocolate evenly and sprinkle with peanuts. Cut into bars about 3 x 1 inch.
