Peanut Brittle Bars
2 C flour
1/2 C brown sugar
2/3 C butter
2 C cocktail peanuts
1 C milk chocolate chips
1 12oz jar caramel ice cream topping
3 TBLS flour

Preheat oven to 350F.
Line a 15x10x1 inch pan with foil or parchment paper.
If you use foil, spray with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine flour and brown sugar; using a pastry blender, cut in butter. Mixture will be crumbly.

Press evenly into prepared pan and bake 12 minutes or until golden.

Sprinkle peanuts and chocolate chips over crust. In a small bowl mix caramel topping and 3 TBLS flour. Drizzle evenly over peanuts and chocolate chips.

Bake 12 to 15 more minutes or until caramel is bubbly.

Cool in pan on rack. Cut into squares.

This really couldn't have been any easier.

I was out of parchment paper, so I used foil sprayed with cooking spray.

Oh noes this is dangerous. "peanut brittle" and "easy" should never be in the same sentence.
