Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally to 240 degrees on a candy thermometer.


Stir in butter and peanuts.


Cook, stirring constantly to 300 degrees on the candy thermometer (watch closely so mixture doesn't burn).

Pour half of the candy mixture onto each cookie sheet and spread about 1/4" thick.


Cool and break into pieces.
