Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips until melted. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla and the eggs until well mixed. Stir in flour and baking powder. In pan, spread batter evenly.
  • Bake 18 to 23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (do not over bake). Cool completely in pan on cooling rack, about 30 minutes.
  • In 2-quart saucepan, heat 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup butter and the milk to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in marshmallow creme, 1/4 cup of the peanut butter and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Pour over cooled brownies. Sprinkle peanuts over top.
  • In 1-quart saucepan, heat caramels and 1/4 cup water over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until caramels are melted; pour over peanuts.
  • In medium microwavable bowl, microwave 1 cup chocolate chips and the butterscotch chips uncovered on High about 1 minute or until softened; stir until smooth. Stir in remaining 1/4 cup peanut butter; spread over caramel layer. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before cutting. Use foil to lift brownies from pan before cutting. Cut into 8 rows by 6 rows. Store in refrigerator.
