Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

I'm going to try to learn some things about photography so that you can see how beautiful this food actually looks instead of seeing these pictures that don't do them justice.  I was seriously craving some peanut butter the other day, and based just on what I had in the pantry, I was able to make these delicious bars.  I'm not usually a peanut butter person, but when you're trying to lose weight, peanut butter becomes almost a no-no.  And you know how those no-nos are when you're trying to get that weight off.  They call to you at all hours of the night and won't leave you alone until you give in.  So, I made room for these awesome peanut butter chocolate bars.  When you bake them, I would suggest putting them in for the full time and letting them cool completely before cutting into them.  Just like cookies, they'll be gooey in the middle, but they'll keep cooking after you take them out.  All I can say is, I am thankful that we were taking dinner to someone that night and that my husband ate most of the rest, because otherwise I would have gained about 3 pounds eating these.

I found the adapted recipe for these scrumptious bars at Bake at 350.

These look great :)
As far as photography goes, it seems like most people that take pictures of food stack whatever they make so it looks almost like you would see at a bakery or restaurant. And it seems like just about everyone one of them uses macro to shoot, which is the flower setting. This gives a lot better detail to an object that is close to the camera, and also gives you the benefit of blurring as you get further from the focus point. I think your Kodak should have "Exposure Metering" under one of it's options, you can try different settings, like "Center-Spot" instead of Multi pattern. The one I'm basing this off of is 3 years old so I don't know if yours will be the same. You can also try changing the Focus zone. But I think with photography, practice makes perfect, just like everything else, and I know you'll be great at it.

So, I really want to make these for a party on Saturday. Have you ever tried doubling the recipe and putting it in a 9X13, or should I stick to the normal way in an 8X8? Can't wait to try these!
