- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup peanut butter

- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and water.
