Boil together 3/4 cup heavy cream and 6 tbs butter; remove from heat and stir in 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate until melted; pour over caramel layer. Top with 1/2 cup peanuts (optional). Chill (I put it in the freezer for 1hr.). Keep refrigerated.
Make sure to sit out for at least 30min. to facilitate cutting.
