Choco-Peanut Breakaways

Servings: Makes approximately 16 servings
These were so good I had to ask my friend for the recipe. A very different cookie and very delicious. If you love chocolate and peanuts together, you will love these.

1 cup (2 sticks/8 oz./226g) butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar (firmly packed)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
1 egg
1 (6 oz.) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup salted peanuts (Planters best)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F/190 degrees C. Lightly grease a 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 by 1-inch jelly roll pan.

Cream butter with the sugar. Stir in remaining ingredients; spread in prepared jelly roll pan. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely, then cut in squares.

Makes 16 breakaways, depending on what size squares you cut them.
