Spoon into two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until bread tests done. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. When completely cooled, wrap each loaf in foil and refrigerate overnight. The next day, melt peanut butter and butter in a small saucepan; remove from the heat. Stir in confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla. Frost loaves; sprinkle with nuts and chocolate chips. Yield: 2 loaves.
