Jeff's Invention - Honey Chocolate Peanut Chews

Jeff loves peanuts and candy and chocolate, and decided this evening to invent a chocolaty, peanutty candy. He used the Honey Roasted Peanut Brittle recipe, changed it around a bit, and created something completely new and different. I think he intended to make kind of a chocolate bar, but it ended up being more of a chew. We like it this way!Honey Chocolate Peanut Chews
2 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups peanuts
2/3 cup milk chocolate chips

Mix water, oil, vanilla, honey, and salt in a saucepan. Heat to boiling. Add peanuts. Cook over medium heat until almost dry.

Add chocolate chips and stir. Remove from heat.

Drop by spoonful into mini muffin tin, greased with cooking spray. Let cool to set. You could probably also drop these onto wax paper instead of the muffin tin.

Makes 2 dozen.
