Made these last night, brought them to the office this morning. Everyone loved them! They turned out fabulous and were so easy to make. I used 1/2 semi-sweet chips and 1/2 butterscotch like scotcharoos :) Will make them again!

Great squares! These are similar to other recipes I've made but I really liked the addition of the peanuts to the base and the peanut butter to the chocolate topping. I sprinkled extra chopped peanuts on top too for decoration. Really delicious.
