Step-By-Step

1Chop honey roasted peanuts to 1/8 inch, do not sift the sugar coating, but include it in mix

3Be patient with this step to achieve an even mix.

Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract slowly until creamy.

Mix eggs one at a time and allow mix to absorb them.

SLOWLY (about 1/2 cup at a time, sprinkling over mixing bowl) add flour/cocoa mixture and allow mixer to beat well.

Once creamy, STIR in nuts and morsels alternating about 2 TBSP at a time to allow even distribution.

4Preheat oven to 375 F
