Honey Roasted Peanut Brownies

makes about 24 brownies


10 oz bittersweet chocolate chips

10 Tbsp butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup sour cream

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups dry roast honey roasted peanuts


Preheat the oven to 350°.  Line a 11x7" baking dish with foil; set aside.


Place the bittersweet chocolate and butter in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat in microwave 30 seconds at a time until the butter and chocolate are melted and smooth.  Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.


Beat the chocolate mixture with the sugar, eggs, vanilla and sour cream until smooth.  Add the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir until just barely combined.  Fold in the semisweet chocolate chips.


Spread the batter in the prepared pan.  Cover the top of the batter with the peanuts, pressing the peanuts slightly into the batter.


Bake 30-35 minutes, or until barely set in the center.  Cool completely in the pan before cutting into bars.  Store in a covered container up to 1 week.
