1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 Tablespoons butter, melted

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 375.
In a small bowl mix topping ingredients until crumbly.  Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, cream peanut butter and margarine/butter.  Slowly beat in brown sugar.  Add eggs one at a time, beating until fluffy.  Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and chocolate chips.  Add alternately with milk to the creamed mixture, beating after each addition.  Spread batter in a greased 13 x 9 pan, top with crumb topping.  Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until a toothpick come out clean.
