DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325° F.
  • Mix flour and baking soda together.
  • Beat 1/2 cup brown sugar, sugar and butter in a separate mixing bowl until creamy.
  • Add egg yolks and vanilla extract to creamed mixture.
  • Gradually mix in flour mixture until crumbly.
  • Stir in 1 1/2 cups chocolate morsels and 1/2 cup peanuts.
  • Press dough onto bottom of greased 13 x 9 inch pan (I put cling wrap over the dough and then just press with my hands- it just works better than any other technique I've found so far and this way my hands, though clean, aren't all over the food!).
  • Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Gradually beat in remaining brown sugar until stiff peaks form.
  • Spread egg& sugar mixture over dough.
  • Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup chocolate morsels and remaining 1/4 cup peanuts.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Cool on wire rack for approximately 20 minutes.
  • Cut into bars while still warm- the BEST time to eat these!
