Southern Living NOVEMBER 2004

  • Yield: Makes 1 pound

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup finely chopped unsalted peanuts, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup peanut butter-and-milk chocolate morsels

Preparation

Spread 1/2 cup chopped peanuts into a 9-inch circle on a lightly greased baking sheet.

Coat top 2 inches of a 2 1/2-quart glass bowl with butter; place remaining butter in bowl. Add sugar and 1/4 cup water. (Do not stir.) Microwave at HIGH 8 minutes or just until mixture begins to turn light brown; pour over peanuts on baking sheet.

Sprinkle with chocolate morsels; let stand 1 minute. Spread melted morsels evenly over peanut mixture, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chopped peanuts. Chill until firm. Break into bite-size pieces. Store in an airtight container.
