Chocolate Peanut Squares

I got this recipe from Country magazine. It's pretty rich so you better be in the mood for chocolate! :-)

Chocolate Peanut Squares

You'll Need:

1 c Butter
6 squares (1 once each) Semi Sweet Chocolate (or 3/4 c of chocolate chips)
1-1/2 c Graham Cracker Crumbs
1/2 c. Dry Roasted Peanuts, chopped (the recipe said unsalted, but I only had salted so that's what I used
2 pkgs (8 oz) Cream Cheese, softened
1 c Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
9x13" pan


3/4 c Butter
1/4 c Chocolate Chips (or 2 squares Chocolate)
1-1/2 c Graham Cracker Crumbs
1/2 c Chopped nuts

Cream Cheese mixture:

2 pkgs of Cream Cheese
1 c Sugar
1 t Vanilla

Top layer:

1/4 c Butter
1/2 c Chocolate Chips (or 4 squares)

Chop up the Nuts and Graham Crackers
Melt the Butter and Chocolate Chips (1st amounts)
Make sure you have a 9x13" pan
Melt the Butter and Chocolate until smooth
Mix with the Chopped Nuts and Graham Cracker Crumbs
Press into bottom of the pan and put in the fridge to set up for 30 minutes
While the crust is in the fridge setting up. Cream together the Cream Cheese, Sugar and Vanilla
Beat until fluffy.
Pour over crust and spread
Melt 2nd amounts of Butter and Chocolate until smooth
Pour over the Cream Cheese mixture and spread

I got impatient and cut it before it was totally set up, but you get the idea. :-)

Oooh, I really want to go make some! Is it bad that my chocolate cravings are already kicking in at 9:30 in the morning?
