Ingredients

SHORT BREAD
2 cups flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter
PEANUT-CARMEL
14 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 14 ounce sweetened condensed milk
4 tablespoons light corn syrup
9 ounces 1 cup dry-roasted peanuts
TOPPING
9 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 ounces milk chocolate, chopped


Heat oven to 325 degrees. Line 9x9x2" baking pan with regular or nonstick foil.



Shortbread: In food processor, process flour, sugar and butter until mixture looks sandy and begins to clump. Turn into pan; press over bottom and prick all over with fork.



Bake in 325 oven for 5 minutes. Lower heat to 300 degrees and bake 30-40 minutes or until crust is pale gold. Let cool completely in pan on wire rack.



PEANUT-CARAMEL FILLING: In large microwave-safe bowl, melt butter on 100% power for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in condensed milk and corn syrup. Microwave on 50% power for 10 minutes or until boiling; remove from oven every few minutes to stir. Mixture should be thickened and light golden brown. Let stand 1-2 minutes. Whisk. Stir in peanuts. Spread over cooled shortbread mixture.



CHOCOLATE TOPPING: In large microwave-safe bowl, combine bittersweet and milk chocolates. Microwave on 50% power until melted, 2-3 minutes; stir to combine. Spread chocolate over peanut filling. Let cool. Once chocolate is set, with sharp knife, cut into 24 bars.
